About usThis Research Training Group GRK2062 brings together junior researchers from biology, chemistry and physics, who work in the emerging field of Synthetic Biology. It provides an innovative, integrated and international PhD training program. Funded by the DFG, the Research Training Group is a joint initiative by leading scientists from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) Munich as well as from the Technical University Munich (TUM) and the Max-Planck Institute of Biochemistry.
Projects range from the development of synthetic proteins, to synthetic switches as well as artificial cells and even the creation of cell free synthetic-biological systems. The aim is to gain a deeper understanding of the intricate functionality of cells, organisms and even ecosystems and thus contribute to the analysis and treatment of complex diseases as well as to the development of novel biotechnological processes.
