Celebrating EMBL’s PhD students

Forty-seven PhD students from all of EMBL’s six sites were celebrated during EMBL’s 2019 Graduation Ceremony on Friday 13 December.

Together, the PhD students represent 29 countries around the world, and their research topics vary from the epigenetic ageing clock in humans to a structural analysis of the cohesion complex, and the origins of primary tumours and residual disease in breast cancer. All students and their supervisors are listed below.

Michael Boutros, Head of Division at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), gave the keynote lecture during the ceremony.

Training and inspiring the next scientific generation

The EMBL International PhD Programme exemplifies EMBL’s commitment to first-class training and education. Internationality, dedicated mentoring and early independence in research characterise the programme, which is committed to providing EMBL PhD students with the best foundation for a successful career in science.

220 students from over 50 countries are carrying out PhD research at EMBL at any given time. Every year we admit an average of 60 new students, who are among the top science graduates in their countries.
The next call for applications will open in February 2020 and close mid-April, with interviews in July. For more information, see www.embl.de/training/eipp/application/.
