The IMPRS for Molecular Life Sciences: From Biological Structures to Neural Circuits (IMPRS-LS)

The IMPRS for Molecular Life Sciences: From Biological Structures to Neural Circuits is a center of excellence for the training of PhD students in the areas of biochemistry, cell biology, molecular medicine, neurobiology and structural biology. The research school takes an interdisciplinary approach to integrate these different research areas to provide a multidisciplinary PhD program. IMPRS acts as a platform to encourage better networking and scientific exchange as an integral part of our doctoral training. In addition to high level scientific training in a top-class research environment, the IMPRS-LS offers a comprehensive curriculum of further training and activities. The curricular program covers a wide array of transferable skills and includes multi-step career mentoring, specifically aimed at preparing our doctoral students for the challenges of a professional career on the global market, whether that be in academia, industry, or beyond.

With around 140 current students and 60 faculty members, the IMPRS-LS here in Munich is one of the largest International Max Planck Research Schools in Germany. Whilst the research school has expanded substantially in the last decade, we aim to maintain the close relationship with our students and the familiar atmosphere which characterizes our program. We therefore do not anticipate further growth, in terms of the size of our program, in the future.
