Research Track-concept debuts October 27th


The Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacys much-anticipated interdisciplinary Research Track-concept will premiere October 27 2017 with a full days focus on Reproduction and Development.

The Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy now introduces the concept of thematic Research Tracks in the education and training of PhD-students. The basic idea is to increase all PhD-students and researchers opportunities to meet, interact and immerse in creative research processes.

To qualify for a research track, each PhD-student has to participate in the following events during the research training:

  • 2 research track days
  • 1 international conference in a research field relevant for the track chosen
  • 5 ECTS (minimum) of specialized courses, according to definitions in the list

Completing these requirements will render a 1.5 ECTS "track course" which will serve as the formal confirmation of participating in the research track.

Beginning January 1, 2018 all newly admitted PhD-students will choose at least one track in their application for admission. Students that are already in training are also welcome and encouraged to choose a track! Send an e-mail with your name and the track of your choice to the research training committee at

The research tracks initiated to date – allowing PhD-students to distribute themselves into entities of comparable size and scope – are:

  • Inflammation (Inflammation)
  • Cardiovascular diseases (Hjärta-kärl)
  • Cancer (Cancer)
  • Drug development (Läkemedelsutveckling)
  • Infection (Infektion)
  • Neuroscience (Neurovetenskap)
  • Metabolism (Metabolism)
  • Reproduction and development (Reproduktion och utveckling)
  • Musculoskeletal system (Skelett-rörelseapparaten)
