To fulfil the requirements of the International Helmholtz Research School for Diabetes, doctoral researchers acquire credits for scientific and professional training according to the requirements of their Graduate school (HELENA, Helmholtz Munich or the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research, University of Alberta).



A key component for HRD-funded doctoral candidates is the International Mobility Program - a 2-6 month exchange of doctoral researchers taking place at the international partner: Alberta Diabetes Institute or the Helmholtz Diabetes Center.
