Training & Career

EpiCrossBorders - Epigenetics across Borders - is an international and interdisciplinary PhD program fostering epigenetic research at the Helmholtz Zentrum München. It provides an optimal research and training environment for graduate students to work on their PhD project in the field of epigenetics. Research excellence guaranteed by epigenetics@HMGU groups is complemented with a dedicated training program and individual career development plan creating an environment in which every PhD student is able to achieve their personal and professional goals.

PhD projects are conducted at the cutting edge of basic and translational epigenetics research and encompass cellular plasticity, stem cells, diabetes, computational biology, epidemiology, metabolism, immunology, development and systems biology.  The school was launched from the dynamic, international and highly collaborative epigenetics@HMGU community and will see students embedded in a progressive, scientifically enriching environment at all levels - in the lab, at the center and within Munich at large.
