International Max Planck Research School

PhD Program in Structure and Function of Biological Membranes

The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) is a joint initiative between the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics and the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. Founded in 2000, it was one of the first Research Schools to be established. The teaching program combines a lecture course by world leaders in their respective disciplines with laboratory practicals in small groups. They provide in-depth training in a wide range of systems and methods, ranging from studies of membrane protein structure in atomic detail, to functional studies by advanced spectroscopic techniques, up to whole cells and tissues.

Research School students are selected from the participating IMPRS groups, which include internationally leading laboratories in the areas of membrane protein structure determination, membrane biochemistry, molecular biology, functional studies by electrophysiological and spectroscopic methods, computational biophysics and structural bioinformatics, as well as studies of whole membranes, cells and tissues. The Max Planck Institute of Biophysics and research groups at Frankfurt University offer a unique environment for the study of biological membranes and membrane proteins.
