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

News and Events

Copenhagen Bioscience Snapshots

Following on from the success of last year’s student-organized symposium ‘The Complexity of Ageing’, this year our students are organizing a series of seminars entitled ‘Copenhagen Bioscience Snapshots’.

The first pair of talks will be on June 12, 2019 at 15:30 in the Nielsine Nielsen Auditorium at Panum, featuring Olga Vitek (Northeastern University, Boston, USA) and Amir Feizi (Novo Nordisk Research Center, Oxford, UK). Check our Seminars page for more dates.

Podcast Recommendations

podcastsBoth DanStem and CFB have recently begun science-themed podcasts.

At DanStem, CPH Bioscience PhD students Kata, Jan-Erik and Anna are involved in making the new DanStem podcast series. The most recent episode is an interview with Anne Ferguson-Smith on epigenetic inheritance and imprinting.

Meanwhile at CFB, CPH Bioscience PhD student Daria was interviewed for the Cell Cast series. She discusses her experience of CPH Bioscience PhD so far – including the interviews and what it is like being part of the programme – so it’s a great listen for prospective students!

Student Publications

First-author publications so far this year include:  Plasma proteome profiling discovers novel proteins associated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (Lili Niu), Compartmentalization of immune response and microbial translocation in decompensated cirrhosis (Camila Alvarez-Silva) and CRISPR/Cas9 as a genome editing tool for targeted gene integration in CHO cells (Daria Sergeeva).

Work two of our 2018 students (Justine Turlin and Vivienne Mol) did during their rotations just a few months ago has also been published!

Our students have contributed to at least 17 peer-reviewed scientific publications since the programme began in Sept 2016; and nine of the 14 students who joined CPH Bioscience PhD in 2016 are authors on at least one publication.

Keep up the good work, everyone!

2020 Student Selection Process

Our next call for applications, for students to start in Sept 2020, will open in Fall 2019 – watch this space!
