The International Graduate School in Development, Health and Disease offers a most stimulating and productive research environment, characterised by a high degree of interdisciplinarity.
The participating research groups use microbial, plant and animal model systems to investigate cell biological and genetic mechanisms whose perturbation during the life cycle of an organism results in disease. The groups are located in various institutes. Thanks to the newly opened Biocenter (http://www.biologie.uni-koeln.de/497.html only in German) most of them are close neighbours, as institute for biochemistry, genetics, botany, zoology and developmental biology are located in that complex.
