Lectures and seminars
During the program and throughout the year, we and our partner institutes offer numerous lecture and seminars from leading scientists in the field. The interns have an opportunity to interact with graduate students, postdocs and junior group leaders from the regional cluster of institutes and universities. The graduate seminars are also open to selected interns.
Excursions and cultural programs
There will be organized tours to regional landmarks and cities as well as cultural outings in Cologne/Bonn.
Certificate of achievement
At the conclusion of their internship, each participant will submit a report summarizing their work at the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing. The participant, up on successful completion, will receive a certificate of participation from the Max Planck Society.
