The doctoral program "Biomolecules: Structure – Function -Dynamics" is part of the Göttingen Graduate Center for Neurosciences, Biophysics, and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB). It is hosted by the Göttingen Center for Molecular Biosciences (GZMB) and is conducted jointly by the University of Göttingen, the Max Planck Institute of Multidisciplinary Sciences, and the German Primate Center.
The research-oriented program is taught in English and open to students who hold a Master's degree (or equivalent) in the biosciences, chemistry, physics, or related fields.
The Biomolecules program comprises a broad variety of research which has its main focus on structure determination and biophysical characterization of biomolecules. The program also covers biochemical, biophysical and medical relevant aspects of proteins. Other topics are related to mechanistic understanding of protein function in vitro and within the cellular context. Teaching covers all those aspects and practical courses are offered related to the state-of-the art methods needed to study biomolecules in structure and function.
