"My research group is located at the Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation. I am very happy with my supervisors! They are great, patient and always have time for their students. They give good feedback and are making sure you don’t do useless things. They support you if you want to go to a conference or if you have new ideas.  IHBI is a collaborative medical research institute, which is well connected to other institutes and hospitals in the city. Great location for research. You are collaborating with partners, interacting with group members and get regularly a feedback or new input." [Zum Bericht]
