About us

Welcome to the Graduate School of Quantitative Biosciences Munich (QBM). Our School aims at preparing young life scientists for the new era of quantitative, systems-oriented bioscience. It provides an innovative, integrated PhD training program that is international in outlook and brings together a range of diverse disciplines, from biochemistry and medicine to bioinformatics, experimental and theoretical (bio-)physics, and applied mathematics. Both student research projects and classroom teaching are highly interdisciplinary, with a thematic focus on the problem of gene regulation in all its facets. The School is a joint initiative by leading scientists from Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU) Munich as well as from the Max-Planck Institute of Biochemistry and the Helmholtz Center Munich.


Vicente Yépez  (class of 2014): "QBM is a great graduate school because it provides the students with the necessary tools to adapt and succeed in their PhDs. You can always count on the staff for any kind of academical and extra academical help. I am both happy and proud of being part of it."
