Copenhagen Bioscience PhD Programme

Fully-funded four year PhD programme in an international scientific environment

News and Events

Sign up now for our 2022-2023 courses

PHD day 1We run five courses as part of our pre-doc curriculum that are also open to other enrolled PhD students. A version of one of the courses, ‘Introduction to Molecular Bioscience’, is also open to Master’s students. Registration for ‘Introduction to Molecular Bioscience’ (PhD version / Master’s version), ‘Stem Cell Research and Critical Thinking‘, ‘Protein Research and Critical Thinking‘, ‘Bioengineering and Critical Thinking‘ and ‘Basic Metabolic Research and Critical Thinking‘ is open now for Autumn-Winter 2022-2023. Check our Courses page for links to course descriptions, registration details and deadlines.

CPH Bioscience PhD defenses

Novo Nordisk Fonden PhD-program ceremoni.

Jenny Landberg, Daria Sergeeva, David Romero Suarez, Camila Alvarez Silva, Hana Sedlackova, Anamarija Pfeiffer, Lisa Schubert, Lili Niu, Karolina Ditrych Hvid, Felipe Gonzalo Tueros Farfan, Belin Selcen Beydag-Tasoz, Nadine Goldhammer, Jan-Erik Messling, Ekaterina Kozaeva, Denis Shepelin, Jose Manuel Camacho Zaragoza and Ulrike Kuehbacher have become the first seventeen Copenhagen Bioscience PhD students to defend their theses. We we look forward to celebrating more defenses in the coming months.

Our students have contributed to at least 135 peer-reviewed scientific publications since the programme began in Sept 2016 – including articles in Nature, Science and Cell.

Keep up the good work, everyone!
