Watch out for EpiCrossBorders – Our new international Research School

Together with the Edinburgh bioscience programs*, Our epigenetics@HMGU community got funding to set up a cross-center Research School: EpiCrossBorders.

Through the EpiCrossBorders program, both communities will team up to train promising young scientists in the field of epigenetics. One of the key features of the EpiCrossBorders program will be an innovative mobility and exchange concept between the partners in Munich and Edinburgh to foster the Students’ curiosity and creativity.

*Integrative Cell Mechanisms (Wellcome Centre for Cell Biology); Human Genetics, Genomics and Disease and Biomedical Artificial Intelligence (MRC Human Genetics Unit); Regenerative Medicine (Centre for Regenerative Medicine)
