Labs are elements of the master program lasting about 3 months. The first 2 months are dedicated to experiments, while the last month is for writing up the data and presenting the results. Most are evaluated by a combination of a protocol and an oral examination. You will select a total of 4. Each lab is 15 credit points according to ECTS.

Campus & international lab placements
There is a range of outstanding research institutions on campus including the Max Planck Institutes for Development Biology, Biological Cybernetics and Intelligent Systems, the Friedrich Miescher Institute, the Centers for Plant Molecular Biology and Integrative Neuroscience as well as the Hertie Insitute for Clinical Brain Research. Lab placements can be arranged in agreement with the principle investigator of the lab of interest.
In addition, the faculty of the IFIB will also support your search for lab opportunities abroad. We have an established exchange program with China and good connections to many labs in the USA and Europe. See Internationality for details.
