An International PhD program at Imagine 2016
Imagine is an interdisciplinary research center in molecular medicine in the Necker Enfants-Malades University Hospital campus. Imagine offers cutting-edge research facilities with excellent core facilities for genomics, cell imaging, flow cytometry, bioinformatics, pathophysiology and animal housing for transgenic mice and zebra fish.
Imagine is affiliated with Paris Descartes University, the INSERM national institute for medical research and the Paris Public Hospitals Group (Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris). As a research and healthcare Institute, Imagine focuses on rare diseases, their genetic architecture and life-long outcomes. Imagine intends to address unmet basic and clinical research questions related to rare diseases, in order to increase knowledge in a major medical field that is currently insufficiently covered.
Imagine offers PhD fellowships open to international recruitment of highly motivated and talented students. These students will work in a well-funded Institute, with up-to-date facilities and in a stimulating scientific environment. The Institute is currently composed of 350 staff members from 25 labs and 3 associated labs.
The training program presents opportunities in genetics, immunology, infectious diseases, heamatology, nephrology, developmental defects, metabolic diseases/encephalopathy, dermatology and gastroenterology within the 25 research groups of Imagine and 3 associated labs.
The list of proposed topics will be available after May 30th, while preliminary contacts could be made with Imagine laboratories before.
