IMPRS Faculty

The Research School emphasizes the potential of integrated research programs to unravel the molecular basis of plant development. The Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ), together with several groups at the University of Cologne and the Heinrich Heine University of Düsseldorf have pooled expertise in molecular plant genetics, structural biology/biochemistry, and cell biology to provide excellent research opportunities for Ph.D. students, and facilitate contacts with other research groups.
