This international graduate school specifically aims at the function and structure of proteins and has a special focus on the synthesis, folding and degradation of proteins. This area of scientific investigation is of outstanding interest in the post-genomic era. It has a strong impact on current biomedical research and our understanding of the molecular processes leading to human diseases.

This research school represents a close cooperative effort of the internationally renowned Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich and the TU of Munich with the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry in Munich-Martinsried. The program encompasses a variety of related disciplines, in particular cell biology, biochemistry, structural biology, biophysics, biomedicine, molecular biology and genetics to address questions on the molecular processes underlying the synthesis, folding and degradation of proteins.

Research students are invited to attend a regular program of workshops, research seminars and research cluster meetings. The research cluster activities encourage the sharing of ideas and transfer of experimental expertise among the participants of the program. The aim is to provide students with a broad practical and theoretical training including personal knowledge of a wide variety of different research techniques.
