There is an increasing demand for doctoral scientific training able to cope with quantitative reasoning in Molecular Sciences applied to Health Sciences. The aim of the “Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics” Doctoral Programme (M2B-PhD) is to train through research highly qualified professionals in the fields of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics.

The Programme joins Portuguese academic centres of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics, distributed by 3 universities in 3 different cities (University of Lisbon, including the former Technical University of Lisbon, University of Porto and University of Coimbra), to provide training through research in state-of-the-art environments. The team of educators/researchers involved in the M2B-PhD is composed of a core of biochemists and biophysicists complemented with researchers in closely related areas, mostly working in medical, pharmaceutical sciences or engineering schools.

PhD students will be exposed to an interdisciplinary environment suitable for them to tailor their career plan. This may include future careers in academia, as clinicians, health technicians (advanced analytics, biomedical engineering) or biotech entrepreneurs.
