Welcome to the Ph.D. program “Molecular and Translational Biomedicine” (MTB). As a translational research network of PI's affiliated at the University Zurich, ETH Zurich and University Hospital Zurich, we are offering an international Ph.D. Program under the umbrella of the Life Science Zurich Graduate School (LSZGS).

The Ph.D. program MTB imparts knowledge, concepts and modern technologies in basic and applied biomedical research. Ph.D. students have the opportunity to work on a broad spectrum of topics including energy homeostasis, metabolism, aging, cell growth and differentiation, stem cells, inflammation and cell signaling pathways. In their projects they will apply modern approaches in (epi)genetics, genomics, systems- and molecular cell biology. The Ph.D. program MTB provides a modern teaching curriculum and an international research environment to advance our molecular knowledge in cell, tissue and organ function in physiological and disease states with the goal to improve genomic-based patient care.

Students can apply by July 1st and December 1st. For more details on the application process and how the program supports students during the course of their Ph.D., please refer to the LSZGS website.
