The doctoral researcher representatives represent the voices of ALL doctoral researchers of the International Helmholtz Research School for Diabetes studying at the Helmholtz Diabetes Center in Munich and the Alberta Diabetes Institute in Canada.

Their suggestions and ideas directly influence and shape the research school's program and structure to guarantee an attractive and successful training for doctoral researchers.
