In recent years Dresden has developed with a tremendous pace to one of the leading scientific centers in the areas of cell and developmental biology, biomedicine, biophysics and bioengineering. Biopolis Dresden is characterized by a vibrant international community of researchers that performs cross-disciplinary research at the highest level in state-of-the art research centers at the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD), the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG), the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (MPI-PKS) and several Leibniz Institutes. The unique combination of scientific expertise makes Biopolis Dresden a highly attractive place for young researchers working towards a doctoral degree.

The Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering (DIGS-BB) in joint association with the International Max Planck Research School for Molecular Cell Biology and Bioengineering (IMPRS-MCBB), representing a faculty of more than 70 group leaders, offers International PhD Programs that provide outstanding opportunities for university graduates to work towards a PhD or MD/PhD with ambitious thesis projects in the following three interconnected research areas:
1. Molecular Cell and Developmental Biology (CellDevo Program)
2. Regenerative Medicine (RegMed Program)
3. Nanobiotechnology, Biophysics and Bioengineering (NanoBio Program)
