About the graduate programme

The Basic Metabolic Research programme is an educational programme for PhD students working in the field of metabolic research. The aim of this programme is to increase the quality of the PhD and to facilitate interactions between PhD students.

Our graduate programme encompasses all aspects of normal and disordered metabolism including, but not restricted to, diabetes, obesity, growth, bone metabolism and all omics research, physiology, cell biology, clinical and epidemiological research related hereto. BMR is collaborating with the Danish Diabetes Academy (DDA). DDA arranges a wide range of PhD course, workshops, and events during the year. We strongly urge all PhD students in this graduate program to sign up as a DDA member (free of charge).

The BMR graduate program does not have any obligatory PhD courses (excluding the course in responsible conduct of research). However, we do expect that you obtain 10 ECTS points offered by the DDA including Summer School on Diabetes and Metabolism and the course on Basal Metabolism.
