More information 


Program description:
The goal of the Doctoral School of Molecular Medicine (DSMM) is to train the next generation of leading researchers by providing a vibrant and productive research environment. The laboratory-based research together with lecture and practical courses, seminars, national and international conferences and access to modern technological platforms makes our doctoral school one of the best in the country. The cornerstone of the doctoral experience is the research apprenticeship that all students undertake under the supervision of their academic advisor. Students in the DSMM graduate program are provided with numerous opportunities to gain insight to clinical and translational aspects of disease. The programs of the doctoral school focus on the biophysical, biochemical and physiological aspects of cellular signaling pathways of excitable and non-excitable cells. The DSMM provides a variety of projects within three doctoral programs: “Molecular and cell biology of cellular signaling”, “Biophysical questions and methods” and “Physiology and neurobiology”.
