Doctoral Programme in Systems and Molecular Biomedicine

The Doctoral programme in Systems and Molecular Biomedicine is part of the Doctoral School in Science and Engineering (DSSE)

Aims and Focus

The doctoral Programme in Systems and Molecular Biomedicine at the University of Luxembourg provides a high-quality research training to Ph.D. candidates and offers complementary training to Ph.D. students to complete their knowledge and skills required for their career development.

The interdisciplinary programme is tightly linked to the research programmes of the University’s Life Sciences Research Unit and the Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB). Bringing together biologists, computer scientists, mathematicians and physicists, the programme aims at federating efforts to offer early stage researchers training tailored to their specific needs. To account for respective specialisations of doctoral candidates, the doctoral school relies on two pillars:

  • Molecular Biomedicine offering doctoral education in modern biosciences with relevance to human health and disease,
  • Systems Biomedicine offering doctoral education in experimental, high throughput technologies and computational approaches to biological systems and disease processes.

The two complementary programmes bridge disciplines and give the doctoral candidates the opportunity to get insights into research areas more distantly related to their individual research training.

The programme is part of the University’s long-term strategy and, more generally, Luxembourg’s recent Health Research initiative, involving e.g. the public research centre Luxembourg Institute of Health (LIH) and the Integrated Biobank of Luxembourg (IBBL).

The working language is English.

2016 PhD Days

This year's Life Sciences PhD Days took place in Belval on 24 and 25 November. It allowed students to build networks, present their work, receive critical feedback and learn about research in general in Luxembourg by gathering researchers from different institutes throughout the country. This two-day event were divided in talks from keynote speakers, as well as talks and poster presentations by the students (15 or 30 minutes).

Best talk awarded to:

  • Anna MONZEL
  • Giulia CESI
  • Linda WAMPACH

Congratulations to them !


2016 Donation by the Pelican foundation of Pierre et Mie Hippert Faber

The Pelican foundation of Pierre et Mie Hippert Faber offers 3 generous donations of 10.000€ each.

The grant can be used to finance research stays in external Laboratories and travel support (e.g. for conferences). The aim should be to increase the quality of PhD's research.

Grants awared to:

  • Nicolas JUNG
  • Javier JARAZO

Congratulations to them !
