Our Partners

To ensure the highest standards of program excellence, the EpiCrossBorders: International Helmholtz-Edinburgh Research School for Epigenetics places a strong emphasis on fostering collaborative partnerships with its affiliates.

Through our collaboration with the University of Edinburgh Epigenetics Community, we extend the boundaries of graduate projects and program design to provide a truly global experience. This encompasses joint projects, an international exchange initiative, and an inclusive multidisciplinary curriculum.  Situated at the forefront of biological and biomedical research, we have multiple campuses covering fundamental aspects of research extending to clinical and translational studies. A key strength lies in the diversity of research topics and the extensive network of collaborative departments, showcasing the University of Edinburgh's commitment to fostering a rich and varied academic environment.

Within the HMGU, our Research School Program operates under the Helmholtz Graduate School Environmental Health (HELENA) framework.  This program serves as a robust foundation, featuring a diverse array of courses that contribute significantly to both general scientific knowledge and professional development. These courses complement and enhance the specialized curriculum of the EpiCrossBorders Research School Program.

As a graduate student at the Helmholtz Zentrum Munich, you not only engage in your research at this esteemed institution but also become an integral part of either Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität or the Technische Universität München.  Your ultimate degree is conferred by one of these universities, providing an additional layer of support and myriad opportunities throughout and beyond your academic journey.
