Advanced Methods Courses

Training and mediation of advanced methods and technologies is in the major focus of the Hertha Sponer College program. Members of the college and MBExC will have access to cutting-edge methods through workshops, lectures and courses designed and held by the MBExC application specialists for Advanced Data Analysis, Electron Microscopy, Optogenetics, Stem Cells & Organoid, and Photonics, and by the MBExC data manager.

Upon certified attendance of advanced methods courses PhD students receive Credits, since our measures are accredited by GAUSS/GGNB. We additionally encouraged PhD-candidates to attend matching method courses and soft skill courses regularly organized by MBExC PIs that offered in the GAUSS/GGNB portfolio in cooperation with the Hertha Sponer College.
