The Doctoral Program in Biotechnology and Bioengineering (EDBB) provides doctoral students with the education necessary to be leaders in the fast-growing industrial and academic biotechnology and bioengineering sectors. Students gain a depth of knowledge and competence in their specific research area as well as a breadth of knowledge in biology, bioengineering and biotechnology.
The combination of coursework, laboratory based research, in-house seminars, and national and international conferences, etc. form the basis of this education.
The program’s themes include:
- genomics and proteomics
- biomolecular engineering and biomaterials
- stem cell biotechnology
- cell and process engineering
- biochemical engineering
- orthopaedic engineering
- biomechanics, mechanobiology
- cell biophysics
- computational biology
- biomedical imaging
- molecular, cell and tissue engineering.
In addition to the research groups of the Institute of Bioengineering, at the interface between the Life Sciences and Life Technologies, and bridging two EPFL Schools: the School of Life Sciences (FSV) and the School of Engineering (STI), the researchers of the Global Health Institute (EPFL School of Life Sciences) are also part of our PhD program and offer exciting PhD positions to talented young researchers.
