PhD in Nanomedicine

PhD in Nanomedicine

The Programme

Nanomedicine is an emerging area of great strategic importance, dedicated to the application of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology to the treatment and improvement of health problems (inflammatory, infectious, cardiovascular, cancer, etc.) in the search for new and effective solutions for example in the early diagnosis, development of intelligent treatments or mechanisms of self-regeneration.

Our Differential Value in the Faculty of Sciences of the University of A Coruña

Why study this programme?

A PhD program unique in Spain, that emphasises the approach from a multidisciplinary perspective: researchers from specialties such as Chemistry, Medicine, Molecular Biology, Pharmacy, Physics, Biochemistry, or Bioengineering collaborate, among others, developing a translational research in which basic and applied research converge.
