"A central mission of our lab is to train next-generation life scientists, who bridge the gap between wet- and dry-lab work. Hence, our team is composed of theoreticians eager to learn about experimental work and of experimentalists interested in quantitative methods and computational modeling of biological systems."

SYNMIKRO Young Researchers Groups

Almost all scientific members of SYNMIKRO are actively involved in DFG’s Collaborative Research Centers (Sonderforschungsbereiche), Research Training Groups (Graduiertenkollegs), or other Cooperative Research projects. Alongside performing adventurous experiments, and reporting excellent science, SYNMIKRO substantially promotes potential Young Research Group Leaders by constantly keeping its doors open to welcome and support Young Researchers planning to set up an Independent Research Group.
