Successful completion of the IPMM Program (2017) - Congratulations to all IPMM-PhD Graduates

12/20/2017

The Interdisciplinary Program Molecular Medicine (IPMM) at the University is aimed at outstanding research-oriented medical and life science graduates.

The Interdisciplinary Program Molecular Medicine (IPMM) at the University is aimed at outstanding research-oriented medical and life science graduates.

Based on Anglo-American models, the IPMM PhD program reflects the increasing importance of interdisciplinarity and provides comprehensive research training in an atmosphere of scientific excellence.

In 2017 -following IPMM PhD students successfully completed the IPMM Program and were awarded the academic degree "Doktor der Naturwissenschaftlichen Medizin - Dr. nat. med." jointly conferred by the Faculties of Medicine and of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. The degree Dr. nat. med. is equivalent to the German Dr. rer. nat. and corresponds to an Anglo-American PhD, or for qualified physicians an Anglo-American MD-PhD.
