Joining IMBS winter school program is definitely one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. IMBS is unique in its compactly-structured interdisciplinary curriculum and the large proportion of time arranged for laboratory practice with sufficient hand-on opportunities to consolidate and expand knowledge and practical skills in biomedical science. Thank to this experience, I was admitted into a Master Program in Molecular Bioscience at the University of Heidelberg. Moreover, the precious friendship I gained from this multicultural group throughout the study, I know, is going to last forever. Lena Xu, China
