How to apply for a new research project?

New research projects start with a call for application that is published on our website and will be sent via email to candidates who have registered at the BioMed X Career Space. Interested candidates are invited to enter information about their previous work and submit an original project proposal addressing the topic of the call. After a first evaluation round, selected applicants are invited to a 5-day innovation boot camp. The invitation includes full coverage of travel expenses, accommodation, sightseeing, and food for the entire workshop.
During the innovation boot camp, all candidates work in interdisciplinary teams under the guidance of experienced mentors on their project proposals. On the final day, all ideas and results are presented in front of a distinguished jury including the senior management of the sponsoring pharma partner of BioMed X.

What do the BioMed X alumni say?

At BioMed X we care for the people who work with us. That’s why we also keep in close touch with our alumni – those who made every research project a big success.
Their impressions, experiences, and lessons learned during their time at BioMed X are the benchmark for the success of our institute. We have asked some of our alumni to give you some insights about their experiences at BioMed X.
