Mainz Research School of Translational Biomedicine (TransMed)

Within the biomedical sciences in Germany there is a striking discrepancy between internationally competitive basic research and poorly developed patient-oriented and clinical research. Thus, there is a critical need for graduate programs that train young medical and natural science graduates in basic and translational research to enable them to become future leaders in the fields of biomedicine and translational research, in academia as well as in the pharmaceutical industry.

The Mainz Research School of Translational Biomedicine (TransMed) addresses this need by providing an integrated, multidisciplinary training curriculum in all aspects of translational medicine.

TransMed is jointly run by four Faculties of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz: University Medical Center, Biology, Chemistry/Pharmaceutical Sciences/Geosciences, and Social Sciences/Media/Sports. TransMed is the umbrella organization for all training groups within life sciences at Johannes Gutenberg University:




TransMed offers unique features for both clinician scientists and natural scientists. More information can be found in the TransMed Image Movie. Please also check the TransMed Curriculum and the Training Program offered.
