This Ph.D Programme is for Graduate Students in Biology, Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Medicine. Prospective students should have an excellent score in their previous classes, a strong undergraduate science background, a strong commitment to research and they should accept the challenge posed by a new interdisciplinary science. Indeed the present Programme is specifically interested in recruiting students with broad scientific interests and a taste for collaboration.

The Programme is designed to offer scientific training, research projects and perspectives in the area of post-genomic biology by using combined computational, engineering and experimental approaches with theoretical modelling, rooted in theoretical physics and mathematics. The biological interests include cell differentiation and development, cell signalling, cell growth and motility, cancer progression, cancer cell genetics, protein folding, gene-expression.
