News from the CRG
The Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), the August Pi i Sunyer Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBAPS), the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona), and the Vall d’Hebron Research Institute (VHIR) have launched the fourth call of the training programme “PhD for Medical Doctors – PhD4MD”.
This initiative, the first of its kind in Spain, allows medical doctors to receive cutting-edge training in research. The ultimate aim is to strengthen links between centres devoted to basic research and hospital research centres, in order to speed up patient access to discoveries made in the lab.
This year the call is offering four three-year fellowships to undertake a PhD project between two centres participating in the programme.
The application period is open till 12 March. The call is also open to medical doctors who hold degrees awarded in other countries belonging to the European Union and who have recognised equal training corresponding to a medical residency.
