The recently founded Biomedical Sciences doctoral degree programme has been created through the merging of the following originally individual study disciplines: Medical Biology, Anatomy, Histology, Embryology, and a new yet-to-be-accredited course Molecular Medicine, which has been designed in the CEITEC MU research centre to be a robust singular study programme consisting of three disciplines (Cell and Tissue Morphology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and Molecular Medicine).

The newly founded Molecular Medicine discipline, which has never before been a part of the list of available study programmes at the MU, and thus represents a completely new area of focus, naturally supplements the already existing biomedical expertise within the MU, and it will primarily focus on educating doctoral students in the area of state-of-the-art Biomedical Technologies.

The studies are designed to emphasise the expansion of the expertise of future graduates in social-management, technological, and widely-applicable abilities, which will allow them to conduct their successive research activities in an effective and modern manner, and it will provide them with an exceptional overview of the ethical and moral aspects of research, which are of utmost importance in the context of conducting research in the field of Biomedicine and general Research and Development. The graduates will be able to obtain job positions as research professionals capable of succeeding in the international competition.

The study programme also prepares researchers and university teachers in the local environment of the FM MU. Some of the graduates continue their careers in the corporate environment related to their study discipline. Furthermore, the newly designed studies significantly expand the spectrum of future career options for the graduates, and that is in the non-academic environment (e.g. Biotechnological enterprises).

The new Biomedical Sciences study programme is in the process of being internationally augmented through: the increase of recruitment of applicants from abroad, scientific and publication activities of doctoral students, the creation of new conditions for inter-disciplinary solutions of given doctoral thesis topics, and the strengthening of social-management and widely-applicable abilities is also emphasised.

    The new Biomedical Sciences study programme is in the process of being internationally augmented through the increase of recruitment of applicants from abroad, scientific and publication activities of doctoral students, and creation of new conditions for inter-disciplinary solutions of given doctoral thesis topics. The strengthening of social-management and widely-applicable abilities is also emphasised.

    This increases the realistic chance for the graduates to become a part of prestigious scientific teams all over the world, primarily in:

    - Scientific research organisations and academic institutions (research institutes, universities) focusing on biomedical research and education - in their early years as interns and then as the heads of the research team or programme, or heads of the core facilities etc. Some of the graduates will be able to fill teaching positions at these institutions;

    - State-of-the-art applied research laboratories focused on the development of new Biomedical methods, especially methods of diagnosis in Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering, testing new pharmaceuticals, and preparing pharmaceuticals intended for advanced therapies (ATMP). In this context they will be able to fill the positions of specialists and developers;

    - In the commercial sector, specifically the areas of training regarding the marketing of pharmaceuticals intended for Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering, and Morphological Diagnostics;

    - Furthermore, thanks to their knowledge of the aspects of intellectual properties and transfer of technologies, the graduates will be well equipped to found start-ups and spin-offs.

  • Praxe

    Applied practice is not a mandatory component of the studies (excluding lab work).

  • Standardy kvalifikačních prací

    The standards for the doctoral thesis at the Faculty of Medicine of the MU are regulated by the Dean's directive no. 3/2013 "The instructions regarding the formal requirements regarding the doctoral theses composed at the Faculty of Medicine of the MU"
