In 2017 UNESCO established "UNESCO/UNITWIN Interregional Network on PhD Education and Research in Biophysics, Biotechnology and Environmental Health" at Life Sciences International Postgraduate Educational Center.
The NETWORK is organized in partnership with the following universities:
In compliance with the PhD program (66 USA credits) of Institute for Health and the Environment of University at Albany (USA) and Graduate School of Biological Sciences at Southampton University (UK) the NETWORK prepares modern science leaders in Biophysics, Biotechnology and Environmental Health. Theoretical courses (core and supporting) are realized through Distant Education System and are conducted by an international team of leading scientists. The PhD students have the opportunity to conduct the research part of their dissertation in laboratories of partner universities.
The students will be engaged in the Network’s research activities carried out in the framework of international grants, and will get commensurate remuneration. The best alumni will become faculty members.
The graduates receive an appropriate diploma of the international standard according to the regulations of home country as well as the certificate of the Network with an indication of the credits gained.
