Dean´s Welcome

Welcome to the PhD Program at CeMM!

Each year we attract the most promising and talented students to join CeMM and form a diverse group of smart young scientists. CeMM is an incubator for creative, out of the box thinkers, and we place special emphasis on the training of PhD students to become visionary and open-minded scholars, willing to cross old, and to seek new, boundaries.

Whether you are a prospective applicant or a first-year undergraduate looking for future opportunities, I hope you will be attracted by our vibrant, interactive and super-collaborative spirit, our aspiration for inter-disciplinary excellence and our dedication to students. Let us surprise you.

The research topics at CeMM range from immunity to cancer or epigenetics, always keeping a strong focus on medically relevant questions, using cutting edge technologies including genomics, metabolomics, and network medicine. We welcome students from diverse backgrounds such as medicine, life sciences, chemistry, mathematics, physics and bioinformatics.

We are proud of our PhD students and alumni, which are at the very core of our successes, the center of innovation at CeMM and the spirit of the future.

Thank you and best wishes,

Sylvia Knapp
