The international PhD program at the Medical University of Graz provides a multidisciplinary cutting-edge doctoral education as a key element contributing to the development of biomedical sciences through an independent research.
All our PhD programs offer high-level scientific training in basic principles of human diseases and therapeutics. Research topics focus on various aspects of cardiac, vascular and metabolic diseases, inflammation, cancer, and stem cells. The education combines scientific mentoring with a research environment that integrates basic, applied and clinical sciences. The wide spectrum of state-of-the-art techniques is complemented with extensive training activities, such as seminars, journal clubs, transferable skills courses, technical workshops, and scientific networking.
Our mission is that graduates are able to pursue their future careers either in academia or industry, and can be equally successful in the fields of training, research & development or marketing.
