The program is aimed at graduate students from Universities, Technological Educational Institutes and Polytechnics of the Health Sciences discipline (eg Medicine, Biology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Physics, Pharmacy, Dentistry, Biotechnology, (Bio)informatics, Nursing and other relevant disciplines of Life Sciences). Candidates wishing to apply coming from a non-Biological graduate program, should have proven basic Molecular Biology knowledge, or will be expected to prove it if selected for an interview.

Application Materials

Applications must be completed and submitted ONLINE only through the link indicated at the bottom of this page.
All the following application materials* are generally required for the online submission:

  • Two Reference Letters which will be sent directly by the referees to the following email address molecularbiomedicine@med.uoa.gr before the deadline for submission of the applications.
     

  • Detailed Curriculum Vitae which will include all information about the candidate's education, research of professional activity and interests (in English).
     

  • Letter of Intent - Personal Statement (1 page) which will describe the applicant's reasons and motives to apply to the specific Postgraduate Program in relation to his interests (in English).
