News and Events

Sign Up for PhD courses

phd-kick-of-nyWe 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’. All five courses are now open for sign-up for the 2019-2020 academic year. Check our Courses page for links to course descriptions and sign-up info.


Copenhagen Bioscience Snapshots

We kicked off the ‘Copenhagen Bioscience Snapshots’ series of talks organized by our students with Olga Vitek (Northeastern University, Boston, USA) and Amir Feizi (Novo Nordisk Research Center, Oxford, UK) on June 12. We were really happy to host them in Copenhagen!IMG_1150

The next pair of talks will be with Barbara Cannon and Elad Noor on October 9, 2019. Check our Seminars page for more dates.

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 18 peer-reviewed scientific publications since the programme began in Sept 2016; and ten of the 14 students who joined CPH Bioscience PhD in 2016 are authors on at least one publication.

Keep up the good work, everyone!


Podcast Recommendations

podcastsBoth DanStem and CFB are recording science-themed podcasts.

CPH Bioscience PhD / DanStem students Kata, Jan-Erik and Anna are involved in making the DanStem podcast series.

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!
