Programme description

"Experimental Biology" is an independent biological discipline that studies biological processes at the molecular and cellular level, in particular using the most current experimental approaches, methods and technologies and the analyses of these processes. It includes the most progressively developing areas of biological and medical chemistry, bioanalysis, experimental biology, biotechnology and biomedicine. Graduates are trained for independent highly specialised work at a methodologically high quality level using the most up-to date instruments. Students are prepared both for independent scientific research work and independent scientific organizational activities.

Programme teaching goals

The aim of the doctoral study programme is training highly qualified scientific workers in the field of Experimental Biology. The students will acquire information about new findings in the area of Experimental Biology, Molecular and Cell Biology, Genetic, Microbiology, Plant Physiology, Pharmacology, Biology, Biochemistry, and Organic and Analytical Chemistry during the study programme in the form of lectures and consultations. The Ph.D. students will improve their spoken and written English to be able to communicate within the scientific community, to write publications as well as give talks at international conferences. The core of the programme is based on experiments conducted under the supervision of experienced and highly qualified university lecturers and scientists from the Laboratory of Growth Regulators (LGR). The students will also be involved in the ongoing projects of the LGR research teams in the areas of Experimental Biology, Plant Physiology, Medicinal Chemistry, Pharmacology, Toxicology, Biochemistry, Molecular and Cell Biology, and Genetic. Leading-edge methods now used in Experimental Biology, Molecular and Cell Biology, Biochemistry and Genetics will be incorporated into the training.
