Students of the International Graduate Program "Protein Dynamics in Health and Disease" are strongly involved in high-quality scientific projects in the Munich-based research institutes taking part in the program. They are constantly engaged in scientific discussion and presentations with posters and talks of their own on international conferences. Most importantly, work of all the students is published in renowned international peer-reviewed scientific journals. Numerous publications are listed below. Members of our program are highlighted.
