China is booming not only economically but also research-wise. A lot of interesting biochemistry is already done there and it is definitely the country with the fastest growth rate.
We run an exchange program with Beijing to allow you to experience the country, its people, and its culture. The visit is fully financed by the DAAD including travel costs and a stipend towards your living costs. It involves a lab rotation in Beijing's Capital Normal University and in most cases a 2nd rotation in Tsinghua University or Peking University, which are among the most prestigious in the country.
Apply by the end of February and see our internal pages for details if you are interested.
