Copenhagen Bioscience PhD Programme

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

News and Events

Sign up now for ‘Introduction to Molecular Bioscience’

PHD day 1We run five courses as part of our pre-doc curriculum that are also open to other enrolled PhD students: ‘Introduction to Molecular Bioscience‘, ‘Stem Cell Research and Critical Thinking‘, ‘Protein Research and Critical Thinking‘, ‘Basic Metabolic Research and Critical Thinking‘ and ‘Bioengineering and Critical Thinking‘. 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) is open now for the course running in Autumn 2022; and registration for the rest of our courses in the 2022-2023 academic year will open later in the year. 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 and Jose Manuel Camacho Zaragoza have become the first sixteen Copenhagen Bioscience PhD students to defend their theses. We we look forward to celebrating more defenses in the coming months.

Student publications

First-author publications from CPH Bioscience PhD students so far in 2022 include: Dynamic human liver proteome atlas reveals functional insights into disease pathways (Lili Niu); Serotonin G protein-coupled receptor-based biosensing modalities in yeast (Bettina Lengger); Phosphorylation of SHP2 at Tyr62 enables acquired resistance to SHP2 allosteric inhibitors in FLT3-ITD-driven AML (Anamarija Pfeiffer); Immune cells in thermogenic adipose depots: the essential but complex relationship (Marina Agueda-Oyarzabal); Myoepithelial progenitors as founder cells of hyperplastic human breast lesions upon PIK3CA transformation (Nadine Goldhammer); Real-time search assisted acquisition on a tribrid mass spectrometer improves coverage in multiplexed single-cell proteomics (Benjamin Furtwangler); SCAI promotes error-free repair of DNA interstrand crosslinks via the Fanconi anemia pathway (Lisa Schubert); Targeting RIOK2 ATPase activity leads to decreased protein synthesis and cell death in acute myeloid leukemia (Jan-Erik Messling).

Our students have contributed to at least 116 peer-reviewed scientific publications since the programme began in Sept 2016 – including articles in Nature, Science and Cell.

Keep up the good work, everyone!
