Applications are now open for students to start in Sept 2020! To find out more about the Copenhagen Bioscience PhD programme, check out this Q+A.


Copenhagen Bioscience Snapshots


The next in our ‘Copenhagen Bioscience Snapshot’ seminar series will be with Andrea Pauli and Giles Yeo on December 4, 2019 in the Haderup Auditorium at Panum. Check our Seminars page for more info / dates.

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’. ‘Basic Metabolic Research and Critical Thinking’ and ‘Bioengineering and Critical Thinking’ are still open for sign-up for the 2019-2020 academic year. Check our Courses page for links to course descriptions and sign-up info.

2019 Students Arrive

CopenhagenBiosciencePhDStudents2019Happy to see our 2019 student group getting started in Copenhagen! We’re welcoming our biggest group of students yet, with seventeen students joining the programme this year. This is also a milestone for CPH Bioscience PhD, as we now have students enrolled in all four academic years of the programme so have reached maximum size!

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),  CRISPR/Cas9 as a genome editing tool for targeted gene integration in CHO cells (Daria Sergeeva), and Analysis and interpretation of protein post-translational modification site stoichiometry (Gabriela Prus).

Our students have contributed to at least 24 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!
