The Leibniz Center Infection (LCI) is a strategic alliance of the North German Leibniz Institutes Bernhard Nocht Institute for Tropical Medicine (BNITM), Research Center Borstel – Leibniz Lung Center (FZB) and Heinrich Pette Institute, Leibniz Institute for Experimental Virology (HPI). The LCI focuses on global infections and links the complementary research of the three Leibniz institutes: tropical and emerging infections at BNITM, bacterial infections of the lung at FZB and viral diseases at HPI (www.lc-infection.com). The alliance provides a three-year structured graduate program on “Infection”. This interdisciplinary program offers ambitious training and research opportunities in the fields of parasitology, immunology, bacteriology, virology, infection biology, and molecular-, cellular- and structural biology as well as pathobiology of infectious disease.
Graduates will work on cooperative projects from two LCI institutes in joint supervision. It is mandatory for each graduate to conduct at least 3 months of the research at the cooperating institute.
