MFPL PhD track

Integrative Structural Biology

Logo DP Integrative Structural Biology

The determination of a biological structure is the starting point for understanding how macromolecules work and how they interact with their binding partners. The PhD track was established to integrate the central themes of integrative structural biology in a cooperation of scientists from the University of Vienna and the Medical University of Vienna at the Max F. Perutz Laboratories (MFPL), the Medical University of Vienna and the Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna. Projects within the track will cover a comprehensive range of research areas introducing state-of-the-art techniques, methodology and theory to the PhD students. They are being guided by a supervisor and a PhD committee, a scheme that will ensure an intensive contact and exchange of ideas between the students and the faculty members.

The track is reviewed and funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF as well as the Medical University of Vienna and the University of Vienna. For more information, please visit the homepage of the PhD track Integrative Structural Biology.
