    Why ImPRESS?

    The aim of the project is to launch Interdisciplinary PhD Studies in Biomedicine for young aspiring scientists, who will conduct research on lifestyle diseases and on biostatistics and bioinformatics methods necessary to process and interpret data obtained in research projects. The studies will provide an outstanding opportunity for in-depth education in high-throughput experimental and computational techniques used in genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and immunology.

    15 PhD students will be involved in scientific projects supervised by excellent researchers, outstanding scientists from partner organizations, with a profound expertise and experience in: Cancer/Mutagenesis, Cardiovascular Diseases, Population Medicine and Epidemiology, Diabetes/Obesity, Metabolic and Neurodegenerative Diseases, Regenerative Medicine, Molecular Biology, Genomics, Protein Analysis and Proteomics, Metabolomics/Lipidomics, Immunology. They will be employed by the Medical University of Bialystok.

    Doctoral students will be working on their careers in research through internships, study visits, conferences and trainings at the partner institutions: CEMBIO San Pablo University, Vienna BioCentre, Spanish National Centre for Cardiovascular Research CNIC, Białystok University of Technology and CenStat at Hasselt University. Industry partner organizations: Agilent Technology, deCODE, ideas4biology and Warsaw Genomics will invite PhD students to study visits, so that the young researchers can familiarize themselves with the tools and methods of work and the corporate settings at the host company.

    By providing their know-how, commercial organisations will educate and prepare their potential future employees for their prospective jobs. The most outstanding young scientists will be able to be independent from the start of their academic career and will be strongly huge motivated to become more committed and creative in the research projects carried out thanks to COFUNDing by the European Commission.
