reNEW is now part of Copenhagen Bioscience PhD Programme
Application to the CPH Bioscience PhD programme 2022 is now open.
The Copenhagen Bioscience PhD programme started in 2016. The four-year PhD programme is a unique new concept for PhD education in Denmark, with students recruited initially to the PhD programme rather than individual labs. The first (pre-doc) year incorporates common courses and short rotation projects to optimize student-supervisor matching and encourage interdisciplinary research ideas. Students select a lab for their longterm project partway through the pre-doc year, and work on their PhD project during years 2-4 (the PhD years). Throughout the four years, the PhD programme supports the building of researcher networks, development and successful execution of PhD project plans, and acquisition of a broad base of knowledge and expertise.
The Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Stem Cell Medicine, reNEW, will build on the Novo Nordisk Foundation-funded stem cell center DanStem, the University of Copenhagen. reNEW is aiming to translate scientific discoveries to stem cell-derived medicine, read more about the new center.
