The Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology of the Polish Academy of Sciences has been awarded with an EU Horizon2020 Marie Curie COFUND grant to create the International PhD Studies, Bio4Med: Biology for Medicine, International Doctoral Programme in Biological Bases of Human Diseases.
The main objective of the project is to create international, interdisciplinary and inter-sectoral doctoral studies in the field of biological bases of human diseases. The program will be implemented by 22 leading research groups from the Nencki Institute and their research partners from world-class laboratories located in the EU Member States, Switzerland, Japan, Canada, the USA and Ukraine. The aim of Bio4Med project is to support career development of young scientists through research and training in the area of molecular biology, biochemistry, cell biology, physiology, behavioral studies and bioinformatics.
Bio4Med objectives will be implemented through diverse activities including practical laboratory training, advanced training courses to enhance understanding of the topics of doctoral projects, as well as courses developing research-oriented generic skills.
