PhD in Advanced Biotechnology

PhD in Advanced Biotechnology

Interuniversity Programme, shared by the University of A Coruña and University of Vigo

The doctorate program in Advanced Biotechnology aim to train professional researchers in several fields of biotechnological research and make up a competitive, homogeneous, well structured and high quality offer. The main objective is to prepare students to be able to complete a theoretical, methodological and investigatory training in multidisciplinary Biotechnology, which eventually lead to the elaboration and public defence of a complex, original, and innovative doctoral thesis.
