Graduate schools

In our laboratory, we are dedicated to the support of young scientists. As such, we engage in collaborative efforts like the RNA-Club or GRADE-IQbio for the continuous qualification of young scientists.

Also, we organize multiple seminars for the exploration of the different fields, to which we invite all interested Bachelor, Master and Ph.D. students (please contact Ivonne Wogatzke for actual dates).
