The Institute is involved in teaching at universities, in the training of young researchers and also operates a range of instruments which are used in national and international collaborations.

We participate in the teaching of courses for physics, biology and biomedical students at RWTH Aachen University, the University of Cologne, the University of Dortmund, and the FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences. Our students receive specific training through weekly seminars and our bi-annual schools. We also contribute to the curriculum of the International Helmholtz Research School, ‘BioSoft’.
