Practical course will be a group course with up to three students. We can just accept students, who have fundamental skills in biochemical working, as taught in “Chemische Biologie Praktikum 1 (GU Frankfurt)”.

Bachelor thesis: Next possibility for bachelor theses in our lab is 2018. Please apply per email with the information as outlined above until the 24th Jul 2017 for theses in the first half of 2018, and until the 22nd Jan 2018 for the second half of 2018.
