There is a growing need for research scientists to acquire fundamental basic and clinical knowledge of physiology and metabolism to interpret the huge amount of available molecular information in the context of endocrine and metabolic disorders. The greatest challenge faced by research scientists in the field of diabetes is to integrate knowledge from several disciplines including molecular biology, cell biology, physiology, and biochemistry, to functionally characterize novel and known genes and to assess their clinical relevance in human disease. The diabetes curriculum is aimed at preparing graduate students at Karolinska Institutet and Umeć University with foundational knowledge for solving the complex metabolic problems associated with the endocrine disorders by offering lecture and methodological courses given by world leading foreign and Swedish scientists.
The programme will coordinate and support ongoing activites in the diabetes area. Doctoral courses at Karolinska Institutet and Umeć University are open for doctoral students from all medical faculties in Sweden.
Travel stipends: To promote students from Umeć University to take doctoral courses at Karolinska Institutet and vice versa, SRP Diabetes will fund a limited number of stipends for doctoral students within the SRP Diabetes programme to cover economy travelling and lodging. Contact Stefan Nobel if you are interested.
