The CeMM PhD program focuses on four thematic areas: infection, immunity, metabolism, cancer, rare diseases, network medicine, and design chemistry that are built on the pillars of epigenetics and genome intergrity, bioinformatics and systems biology, chemical biology, high-throughput genetics, genomics and proteomics, molecular and cell biology, organic chemical synthesis.
The choice of this strategic focus rests on the synergies between immunology, infection and cancer in pathophysiological and technological terms. It furthermore reflects the strength of the current CeMM faculty, itself built around the historical and contemporary expertise in immunology and cancer of the Medical University of Vienna.
CeMM PhD students get the chance to work at the cutting edge of interdisciplinary molecular medicine research and be trained by the entire CeMM and associated faculty to become one of the scientists shaping the future of molecular medicine.
