Welcome!

The International Jena School of Molecular Medicine (JSMM) offers an interdisciplinary graduate program in an attractive and inspiring research environment with a unique combination of expertise in molecular and cellular biology, biophotonics, molecular medicine and clinical research. The JSMM invites young scientists with a diploma or master’s degree in life sciences and medical doctoral students who work towards a doctoral degree in different fields of molecular and experimental medicine.

Currently, 210 doctoral students from 23 countries are enrolled. These students have a primary affiliation with one of the participating research groups and are registered in one of the four graduate schools. The JSMM programs are mainly held in English and are planned for the entire period of doctoral work. The successful completion of the program is approved by a Graduate School Certificate.

The JSMM is a member of the Jena Graduate Academy (JGA) . The participating research groups belong to the Faculty of Medical Sciences/Jena University Hospital , to the Faculty of Biology and Pharmacy/Friedrich Schiller University of Jena , to the interfaculty Center for Molecular Biomedicine (CMB) , to the Leibniz Institute for Age Research/Fritz Lipmann Institute (FLI) and to the Leibniz Institute for Natural Product Research and Infection Biology - Hans-Knoell-Institute (HKI)


The JSMM coordinates four graduate schools:

- the Research Training Group of the Center for Sepsis Control and Care (CSCC-RTG)
- Graduate Program of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Clinical Research (IZKF)
- the Leibniz Graduate School on Ageing and Age-Related Diseases (LGSA)
- the Research Training Group 1715 “Adaptive Stress Responses” (RTG 1715)
