PhD

into labs

research works

The PhD program is devoted to enroll students in various transdisciplinary research topics from very basic science to clinical or pharmacological outcomes. PhD research proposals are under the supervision of CARe-associated research teams from academic laboratories or partner companies. PhD proposals are selected by CARe committees and on line in spring every year. Candidates must send a complete biosketch and will be selected by a mixed board. PhD student will spend a part of the PhD stay abroad.
