The Doctoral Programme on Molecular and Cellular Biotechnology Applied to Health Sciences (BiotechHealth) is jointly organized by:
- Two schools of University of Porto (UPorto) - the Institute for Biomedical Sciences Abel Salazar (ICBAS) and the Faculty of Pharmacy (FFUP);
- Two Research Units – Instituto de Investigação e Inovação da Universidade do Porto (i3S) and the Network of Chemistry and Technology (REQUIMTE)
- One Hospital - the Hospital Centre of Porto (CHP).
The programme provides training in cellular and molecular biotechnology applied to health sciences within a truly interdisciplinary and international environment. BiotechHealth will accept up to 15 students per year, based on stringent evaluation. As minimum condition to apply, national or international candidates must have an MSc degree in a relevant scientific field. Some of these students will be eligible for a grant under the FCT PhD Programme.
BiotechHealth has been approved for funding in 2013 by the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia.
