In addition to the requirement for a Ph.D. dissertation based on original research, students are required to succeed four exams: advanced biochemistry I and II, molecular biology and clinical biochemistry. A second requirement involves monthly journal club presentation and critical discussion (official language: english). On the same day, a different PhD student every month will present his research results and plan. Monthly mini-courses on specific topic are held by members of the PhD school faculty.
All Ph.D. students are expected to participate actively in the department’s seminar program and journal club, and students are encouraged to attend and to present their research at national and international meetings. By the end of each year the state-of-the art of the research proposal is presented by each student to the departmental faculty members in order to step up to the next year.
