About the doctoral programme in cell biology and genetics

The Cell Biology and Genetics programme is a university-spanning and interdepartmental programme that invites doctoral and post-doctoral students at Karolinska Institutet to participate in the different activities it organizes or sponsors.

Aim

The aim of the network is to support the science education within Cell biology and genetics, or related fields. The network bridges various research disciplines within pre-clinical and clinical research. The courses offered by the network are open to all doctoral and post-doctoral students in Swedish universities, and the network also welcomes applications from doctoral students from other countries.

This program is one of the dozen or so doctoral course programs at KI. Note that a doctoral student can belong to as many programs as the student wishes.
