Who are we
In 2000, Hannover Medical School (MHH), one of Germany’s leading medical schools, was first to establish a structured and accredited interdisciplinary PhD program, the MD/PhD program Molecular Medicine. Just three years later, MHH founded the Hannover Biomedical Research School (HBRS) as an “umbrella organization” for existing and future structured postgraduate programs. HBRS co-ordinates teaching and ensures excellent training in high quality research laboratories, and actively encourages integration and interdisciplinary exchange between students and young researchers from medicine, life science and from engineering backgrounds. HBRS fosters educational and scientific interaction between university and non-university institutions in Hannover region; among these are the Leibniz University of Hannover, the University of Veterinary Medicine, the Fraunhofer Institute for Toxicology and Experimental Medicine and the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research in Braunschweig. HBRS provides a framework for international guest lectures, soft skill courses, career workshops, summer schools and for the training of talented students for a future career in science. It follows careers of Alumni and has built up a large Alumni network. HBRS has developed into a “family-oriented” training facility. With the introduction of a “dual career” concept, involving rotation of positions and tandem research groups, HBRS is supporting a new model for clinical research scientists.
