Students and Teaching

We happily offer students of various disciplines (medicine, biology, chemistry, physics, psychology etc.) the opportunity to conduct their theses (MD, bachelor, master and PhD) at our institute. In order to offer students the best conditions, our Institute is part of the doctoral program "Mainz Research School of Translational Biomedicine" (TransMed).
