Helmholtz Zentrum München Deutsches Forschungszentrum für Gesundheit und Umwelt


In order to achieve optimal quality of its program the EpiCrossBorders: International Helmholtz-Edinburgh Research School for Epigenetics relies on its close collaboration with its partners.

Our collaboration with the Edinburgh University Epigenetics Community allows us to provide our truly international Graduate Projects and Program structure. This structure includes collaborative projects, an exchange program and a collaborative curriculum.

At the HMGU the Research School Program is operates under the umbrella of the general Helmholtz Graduate School Environmental Health (HELENA). This program offers a great foundation of courses for both general scientific and professional development. These courses form the key supplement to the topic specific program of the EpiCrossBorders Research School Program!

As a graduate student at the Helmholtz Zentrum Munich will also become part of one of the Munich Universities: The Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität or the Technische Universität München. While you will perform your Graduate work at the Helmholtz Zentrum, you will receive your final degree from one of the universities. In addition, the universities provide an additional layer of support and opportunities.
