offers students the opportunity to do cross-disciplinary research in
world-class institutes. The four year structure comprises intensive
training together with the opportunity for short projects in all three
disciplines in the first year. This provides an excellent platform for
progress in the research project in years 2 - 4.
The first year of the
programme provides intensive training in structural, computational and
chemical biology through foundation courses, lab rotations and an
advanced lecture series.
Students select an individual schedule
of foundation courses, in consultation with the Programme Coordinator,
providing the opportunity to broaden their theoretical and practical
the first two weeks of the programme, students are given the opportunity to meet with research supervisors before
choosing the first of their three lab rotations, lasting 12 weeks each.
- The list of
rotation projects that were proposed for the 2013-14 academic year is
three and four
The student will choose one
project for his/her PhD research. This PhD project will have to be
carried out in one of the three labs in which the student rotated in
his/her first year.
- A list of PhD projects for 2013 can be viewed here.
Progress will be monitored by a thesis committee which
will mentor the student throughout the programme.
The programme is supervised by
a Steering Committee led by the Director, Professor Gabriel Waksman.
The Steering Committee selects students for the programme and monitors
their progress throughout the 4 years.
