Education and Graduate program

Molecular Medicine course, MSc program, MGC gruate school etc.

Teaching in the department is part of the PhD program (approx. 30 students from many different countries) and a MSc program organised by the Medical Genetics Cluster of the ErasmusMC. The latter aims to stimulate interactions between basic and clinically oriented students. The department organises a monthly seminar programme by leading international scientists and there are a number of other seminars each week.

During the first year of their PhD, graduate students will follow the Molecular Medicine course, which runs for 1.5 hrs per week from January until May. Graduate students can also attend courses of the MGC graduate school, in which the Dept. of Cell Biology participates. This includes participation in a yearly joint MGC-Cancer Research UK graduate student conference, which in 2006 was held in Oxford, UK.
