Doctoral Candidates / Projects

Our approx. 50 doctoral candidates are at the heart of our graduate school. Get to know our doctoral candidates on their profiles below and learn more about their research projects. 

Additionally, the GSB Graduate Council is the voice of our doctoral candidates in academic administrative matters for the Graduate School of BioEngineering (GSB) at the Technical University Munich. We are the channel through which student concerns are brought to the attention of the project leaders, mentors and administrative staff of the GSB. 

It is essential that we hear the concerns of the doctoral candidates within the GSB, and we welcome any of your suggestions, comments or complaints!

Our current doctoral students representatives are Judith Zimmermann and Dhritiman Das. 
The Graduate School of BioEngineering (GSB) provides a highly stimulating environment for doctoral research. Our graduate centre attracts outstanding candidates from a variety of academic backgrounds. At the moment, the doctoral candidates are working on the following topics:
