The Graduate Programme in Molecular Biology and Biomedicine (MBB) has been established and runs jointly by the Departments of Biology and Medicine, University of Crete and The Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) of the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH). The collaborating partners have international reputation in cutting edge research in molecular biology and biomedicine and participate actively in educational training and research activities of the Programme.
The quality and the large number of research groups of the three collaborating institutions (Dept. of Biology, Dept of Medicine and IMBB) offers excellent training and comprehensive coverage of modern molecular biology, while engages the students in scientific research aiming to better understand molecular functions and to develop potential medical and technological applications.
The scope of this Programme is to provide high quality training to young scientists in molecular biology and biomedicine, with emphasis on new developments and up to date technologies and to prepare them for pursuing careers in both the academic and industrial research and technology as well as in education.
