Doctoral School of Molecular Cell and Immune Biology
Starting date: September/February
Duration: 8 semesters
Language requirements: Level B2 by CEFR
Academic requirements: MSc degree in a relevant field or Doctor of Medicine/Dentistry/Pharmacy degrees; acceptance by a supervisor and a doctoral school (including a preliminary research proposal signed by the supervisor and the head of the school)
The doctoral school provides high quality education in scientific research on molecular biology, cell biology and immune biology. Motivated doctoral candidates holding MD or MSc (biology, chemistry, physics) are welcome to join one of the approximately 50 research programmes of the doctoral school. These include the investigation on the molecular mechanism of physiological cell death, development of adipose tissue and obesity, innate immunity, autoimmune processes, allergy, stem cell biology, chromatin structure, reproduction of retroviruses, phagocytosis, protein-protein interactions, epigenetics, proteomics, bioinformatics and molecular modelling. Progress in a research programme is assisted by a thesis committee assigned to each PhD student. Teachers of the school give altogether about 30 PhD courses every year, almost all of them are in English. Research groups working in the school have outstanding grant supports and excellent infrastructure.
