Graduate School for Cellular and Biomedical Sciences (PhD program)
PhD students of the ICB enroll in the Graduate School for Cellular and Biomedical Sciences (GCB). Each student has a thesis committee consisting of the supervisor, an external co-referee and a mentor.
In addition to the thesis, selected training courses, summer schools or scientific meetings allow students to acquire additional competences for their work.
The GCB also organises a seminar series with distinguished outside speakers and an annual symposium where students present their work.
Most ICB group leaders serve on GCB commissions, on individual thesis committees, and teach GCB students in their courses and tutorials.
