CiM-IMPRS is Cells In Motion (CiM) Graduate School and the International Max Planck Research School, Molecular Biomedicine (IMPRS-MBM).

CiM-IMPRS is a combined graduate program formed by the merger of the two schools at University of Münster. The course is jointly run by the University of Münster & the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Biomedicine. The course is a continuation and expansion of the former CEDAD-IMPRS series.

CiM-IMPRS PhD Program:

The Ph.D. study offers cutting edge science and teaching in Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences with a strong importance on Imaging. The focus of the course is on biomedical research but students from other disciplines like graduates of computer sciences, mathematics, chemistry and physics are also required. The need is to work on new ways of image acquisition and analysis and novel labeling methods.
