The Spemann Graduate School of Biology and Medicine (SGBM) offers a dynamic interdisciplinary training program that prepares students for future scientific challenges. Its ultimate goal is to create a top notch "Life Scientist of the Future" who can assimilate knowledge and techniques from various disciplines as well as combine basic with translational research, biotechnology and product/drug development. SGBM aims to achieve this prestigious goal by following three major strategies:
• elaborate on existing research and teaching programs in life sciences and introduce additional interdisciplinary courses in "Novel Technologies" and "Soft Skills" and common progress reports and annual retreats between the different research disciplines
• implement an MD/PhD program which allows medical doctors to perform a PhD on projects at the interface of basic and translational research
• set up an exchange program which allows the best doctoral students to participate in research and teaching activities at partner universities abroad and at biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies.
