Programme in Biomedical Sciences of the Doctoral School of Exact and Natural Sciences of the Jagiellonian University in Krakow organized jointly by  the Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology (MCB), Jagiellonian Centre for Experimental Therapeutics (JCET)  and National Synchrotron Radiation Centre (SOLARIS) has a strong interdisciplinary, international, inter-sectoral research and training dimension. In 2020, we will fund 14  studentships10 for MCB, 2 for JCET and 2 for SOLARIS.

JCET, established in 2011, is an unique research centre of the Jagiellonian University devoted to interdisciplinary research on Endothelial Biomedicine. In 2020 JCET employs over 50 staff members, including ca 40 scientists, in three research groups. Currently there is over 40 research projects carried out in JCET, with research budget in 2020 of over 6 mln PLN. JCET team is being increasingly recognized by high impact journal publications (average IF for all 30 publications in 2019 published by JCET team was over 5.2). Currently there are 22 PhD students performing their research for their PhD thesis in JCET laboratories.
