MolBioS PhD Program 2017: day 1

Filed under:
PhD Program officially starts on January 5

Oeiras, 02.01.2015

This week, new students at ITQB NOVA are getting ready to start their PhD. With the official start scheduled for January 5, the first year of the PhD Program in Molecular Biosciences MolBioS begins. And everyone is invited to the opening of the academic year.

MolBioS is a flexible state-of-the-art research oriented program that fills the gap between molecules and living systems, training students in molecular approaches needed to understand the mechanisms of life. This FCT-funded program is coordinated by ITQB NOVA and has the participation of Instituto de Biologia Experimental e Tecnológica (IBET), Applied Molecular Biosciences Research Unit from the Universities of Porto and NOVA UCIBIO and the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC).

On the opening day, students will be welcomed by ITQB NOVA Dean, Cláudio M. Soares and PhD Program Coordinator, Mariana Gomes de Pinho. The session, scheduled for 10h30, includes brief presentations on the research activities of participating institutions by Elio Sucena (IGC), Paula Alves (iBET) and Maria João Romão (UCBIO), followed by an introduction to the PhD program and each of the four research profiles.

This first day will also help the newcomers on the ins and outs of life as a PhD student at ITQB NOVA; testimonies from current students and visits to the different services are among the planned activities. 

The course modules start next Monday with the Program Core Units.
