FROM MOLECULAR DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY TO BIOMEDICINE, EVOLUTION
AND SYSTEMS BIOLOGY
The Universitat Pompeu
Fabra (UPF) is a
university that is committed to public-institution values.
The goal of the Department of Experimental and Health Sciences
(DCEXS) has been to become a research centre with international
presence and recognition in the fields of molecular biology
and biomedicine. It is integrated into the Biomedical Research
Park (PRBB), a formidable concentration of human and technical
resources which is called to become one of the important
research nodes of Spain. The great challenge of the DCEXS
has been to successfully develop a project where research
and teaching are firmly integrated. There are currently programmed
different undergraduate and graduate studies in the fields
of biology, bioinformatics, health and medical sciences.
DCEXS contributes to the PRBB with its great capacity to
train future researchers through its international PhD program
in Biomedicine with an itinerary devoted to basic biomedical
research performed fully in English.
