PhD, Metabolism and endocrinology    Back

Karolinska Institute Course Type: PhD Start Date: To be announced
Location: Stockholm, Sweden Duration: Full time - 4 Years


There is a growing need for research scientists to acquire basic fundamental knowledge of physiology and metabolism in order to interpret the molecular information in the study of endocrine disorders, to be able to integrate knowledge from several disciplines to functionally characterize novel and known genes, and to assess their clinical relevance in human disease.

This curriculum is aimed at preparing doctoral students at Karolinska Institutet with foundational knowledge for solving complex metabolic problems associated with endocrine disorders by offering lecture and methodological courses given by world leading foreign and Swedish scientists. A unique feature of this curriculum is the inclusion of different laboratory courses to introduce current and established clinical, cellular and molecular technology available to solve problems in metabolism and endocrinology.
