The PhD programme at ICCVS is led by senior researchers who are committed to delivering flexible research-led learning for the doctoral candidates.

Our PhD students are enrolled in the high-quality PhD programme of the Intercollegiate Doctoral School of Biotechnology of the University of Gdańsk and Medical University of Gdańsk. We focus to also include in the scope of the training both academic and non-academic opportunities for PhD students to support them fully develop their research and transferable skills.

We strongly encourage and support research initiatives and interdisciplinary collaborations across all levels of academia.

PhD students at ICCVS engage with science at an international level by taking part in conferences & seminars as well as via exchanges and collaborations with scientific partner institutions worldwide.
