Training hosted by ITN-MIMIC.


The MIMIC individual research projects are an integral part of MIMIC´s training philosophy and follow the idea of training through research. All research projects are designed as tight collaboration between all three MIMIC full-participants contributing different expertise to the project.

In addition to individual research projects MIMIC provides network-wide experimental training by establishment of experimental training stations reflecting the expertise of the consortium and performed at the principal investigators laboratories.

These training stations can be combined in a modular manner to design a fellow specific experimental training. The training stations covers disciplines like Cell Biology, Engineering and Drug Development.
