DanStem PhD Students

DanStem is committed to train next generations of first-class stem cell scientists. 

DanStem PhD training is based on individual research projects, working closely with an academic supervisor and Group Leader. Our PhD students are specifically matched with principle investigators based on their research interests and background.

DanStem is part of the Copenhagen Bioscience PhD program


DanStem PhD student community

The Center emphasis that students develop and test new hypotheses and interpretations of knowledge in the fields of cell and developmental biology. All Center's PhD students are registered at The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen, which offers education in a broad spectrum of health science disciplines. Additionally, students are enrolled at the Graduate Program of Molecular Mechanisms of Disease (MoMeD), a cross-institutional research program, (integrated at the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences).

Mentoring of PhD students at DanStem is fundamentally based on:

  • Diverse and integrated curriculum
  • Training in hypothesis testing, experimental design, data analysis and interpretation, grant writing, and oral and written presentation skills
  • Interaction with international and national research students and leaders via seminar series, student research retreats and conferences
