The Graduate School “Life Sciences” is part of the Integrative Research Institute for the Life Sciences (IRI Life Sciences), founded at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in collaboration with the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and the Max-Delbrück-Center (MDC). The IRI Life Sciences is an initiative to pool resources and to pursue interdisciplinary research to bridge theoretical and quantitative experimental approaches across multiple scales of biology.


The Graduate School ‘Life Sciences’ offers high class education in interdisciplinary environment built around the core research areas of the IRI. The curriculum equips students with a state-of-the-art knowledge in both life science contents and methodologies in basic biology research, biomedicine and theoretical approaches.

The IRI Graduate Schools follows an innovative approach, by not focusing on a specific research topic. Instead, the focus of the Graduate Schools arises from the research topics of the PhD students and their groups. Overlapping research interests or methodological parallels ensure a successful and supportive network among the students. Thereby, the IRI Graduate school aims to not only provide optimal training to educate excellent researchers, but at the same time to support an open, cooperative and interdisciplinary way of thinking and to help the students becoming responsible individuals of the scientific community.
