IMB International Summer School 2015 INSTITUTE OF MOLECULAR BIOLOGY

A summer vacation with top researchers

The International Summer School (ISS) organized by the Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB) in Mainz offers students from around the world an opportunity to participate in an exceptional program. Every year IMB selects a small group of budding scientists from hundreds of applicants and, next to lectures, directly involves them in current research projects for a period of six weeks. The Mainz University Medical Center and the Faculty of Biology of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) also participate in this project which contributes towards enhancing Mainz's reputation as an international science hub.

Learning in the land of freedom and narrow lanes

The German language is not difficult and it even can make fun to learn it – this is the motto promoted by Michaela Küper and her team.
