Coimbra Group Life Sciences Master´s Programs: “Master in Cancer Biology”

26 March 2020

Eleven Coimbra Group Universities take part in the “Master´s Program in Cancer Biology”, an initiative of the Life Sciences Working Group (LSWG).

What it is
A proposed action aimed at increasing the excellence and competitiveness of our postgraduate/master students in the context of the Life Sciences. Thus, the LSWG offers to master students in the cancer biology field (or related), the opportunity to develop their practical training/research project (or part of it) in one of the partnering Universities participating in the Program. Students can also attend cancer-related lectures in the foreign University during their practical training.

General aims

  • To develop active networks in the cancer research area,
  • To share training activities and technologies with the goal to boost the quality and competitiveness of bio-scientific education and training,
  • To introduce students to an interdisciplinary approach to cancer research, from basic to clinical level.

Participating Universities

  • Barcelona (Spain),
  • Coimbra (Portugal),
  • Cologne (Germany),
  • Montpellier (France),
  • Pavia (Italy),
  • Salamanca (Spain),
  • Tartu (Estonia),
  • Turku (Finland),
  • Vilnius (Lithuania),
  • Würzburg (Germany),
  • Abo Akademi (Finland).
