Internationale Graduiertenschule Biowissenschaften

In 2004 the International Graduate School of Biosciences (IGB) was founded by the Faculty of Biology and Biotechnology. The IGB is highly dedicated to providing a well-structured, collaborative, interdisciplinary research program for Ph.D. students in the biosciences.

The research groups involved in the IGB span the Faculties of Biology and Biotechnology, Chemistry and Biochemistry and Medicine at the Ruhr-University Bochum, as well as a few other groups working in biosciences. The IGB is committed to providing a supportive research environment for currently about 200 Ph.D. students.
