Our mission is to understand how complex subcellular architecture is created from individual molecular functions that act in concert.

IMPRS-CBP is an international graduate school, hosted by the Max-Planck-Institute of Biophysics, Goethe-University Frankfurt, and Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz.

IMPRS-CBP Research Community

The IMPRS-CBP connects about 30 internationally distinguished PIs from the Rhine-Main Area and builds lasting, interdisciplinary networks.

PhD Training

Our structured PhD program is designed to train the next generation of excellent scientists in the field of biophysics. It offers scientific training throughout the year, a broad selection of 'soft' skill workshops and the opportunity to build long-lasting networks.

Outstanding Infrastructure

Our participating institutions host state-of-the-art facilities for in vitro structural biology (e.g. cryo-EM), mass spectrometry, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), cellular imaging (E.g. cryo-ET), and advanced light microscopy.
