The Integrated Research Training Group "Matrix Engineering" within the TRR 67

The Integrated Research Training Group “Matrix Engineering” addresses to doctoral students in natural sciences, biotechnology and materials science. In the imbedding transregional collaborative research centre TRR 67 there are various groups with different methods: chemists carrying out syntheses, materials scientists realising the design of artificial extracellular matrices, biochemists and biophysicists, structural biologists, analysts and teams with medical interests applying new biomaterials.

The Integrated Research Training Group comprises the structured doctoral studies with scientific seminars, summer school, retreats, skilling workshops and lab rotations to other subprojects of Transregio 67. In addition to working on their doctoral projects all students will be introduced to the workflow, from biomaterials design and development to testing to potential fields of application. The competence of committed scientists in our collaborative research center guarantees a constant scientific exchange.

This profile will qualify graduates for an independent career in various academic and industrial areas.

The Integrated Research Training Group “Matrix Engineering” is incorporated in the graduate schools of the Universität Leipzig: the Research Academy Leipzig (RA Leipzig). The doctoral programme “Matrix Engineering” forms a separate class in the graduate school.
