SignGene

German-Israeli Helmholtz Research School "Frontiers in Cell Signaling and Gene Regulation"

Launched in 2013, SignGene is an international exchange program for PhD students in biomedical sciences.

All students work on collaborative research projects jointly supervised by the principle investigator at their home institute and a partnering group leader from abroad. The main location of a student is defined by the main supervisor's affiliation. As an essential part of the training, SignGene students spend around 6 months of their PhD in the partnering co-mentor's lab in the other country.
