Education at the CNC focuses on Graduate training in the Molecular Life Sciences and Disease, particularly in the fields of Cellular and Molecular Biology, Neuroscience and Biotechnology. The aim is to provide Master and Ph.D. students with a multi-layered education, through programmes with a strong international component.
Doctoral Programme in Experimental Biology and Biomedicine (PDBEB)
The PDBEB is an International Doctoral Programme established by the CNC since 2002, providing advanced, multidisciplinary, research-oriented training in emerging areas of modern Biology and Biomedicine.
For more information check PDBEB website.
Erasmus Mundus Graduate Programmes
As a member of the European Neuroscience Campus Network (ENC-Network) the CNC participates in the Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate, EMJD. Courses organized in the PDBEB Programme are available to all ENC students, with a focus on the Core Neuroscience Module, which covers CNC research expertise in this area, leading to possible joint PhD Projects with other Network partners.
Recently the European Masters Programme NEURASMUS was also established with the CNC as a founding partner.
