Graduate School MINAS
The MINAS graduate school unites research groups from chemistry, biology, biotechnology and pharmacy at the Technical University of Braunschweig (TU BS) and the Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH) and it is the framework for interdisciplinary education and research on topics related to natural products chemistry. However, the topic is not to provide drug research based on natural products.
Interdisciplinary Graduate School Natural Products Research Saarbrücken
This interdisciplinary PhD program (Graduate School Natural Products Research) is the framework for students of chemistry, pharmacy and biotechnology to work on natural products research. Coming from various scientific fields, PhD students bring a variety of modern yet different scientific methods into the program, building the basis for innovative interdisciplinary research.
The HZI Graduate School
The HZI Graduate School
The Helmholtz International Graduate School for Infection Research was founded in 2009 and its goal is to provide a structured education for graduate students in order to provide the optimum condition for their advancement to the next career level. The HZI Graduate School is explicitly open for students of collaborating institutions. Due to the strong background on biological aspects of antiinfectives research, the Graduate School at the HZI does provide education and qualification in chemical topics or drug development issues.
Hannover School for Biomolecular Drug Research (HSBDR)
The HSBDR will provide interdisciplinary training in three different areas (chemistry, biology and medicine) that is not provided by any other institution, both in applied as well as fundamental research for microbial research, anti‐infectives and anti‐tumor agents. The structure of the HSBDR consists of specific training courses on biomolecular drug research, a seminar series, scientific colloquia in an international atmosphere in which all teaching and research is carried out in English.
The PVZ Graduate Program
The PVZ Graduate Program “Processing of Poorly Soluble Drugs at Small Scale”
Starting in fall 2014, the graduate program provides training in the interdisciplinary field of pharmaceutical engineering involving young researchers from pharmacy, chemical/process engineering, microtechnology and related fields. The participants perform research in clusters covering the production of drugs by chemical and biotechnological means as well as their downstream processing, the preparation of nanoparticulate drug carriers and the use of nanoscale formulations for overcoming biological barriers. The research program is, among others, accompanied by courses on research methods, scientific workshops and excursions that stimulate interdisciplinary exchange.
