Initiated about 20 years ago, the PhD Program in Biomedical  Sciences is an interdisciplinary graduate program, providing rigorous training in modern cell and molecular biology. The University of Cyprus provide a highly interdisciplinary and intensely collaborative training environment.


The Biomedical  Sciences students at University of Cyprus learn to combine traditional molecular genetics and biochemistry with rapidly emerging cutting-edge approaches in genomics, proteomics, systems biology and microscopy, and they go on to careers in academia, education, industry, science outreach, policy-making and other related fields.

The Program has been an integrative force that aims to tie together various disciplines and has strong links with the Departments of Chemistry, Physics, Engineering and the UCY Medical School.

The goal is to train our students to examine scientific problems from many perspectives empowering them to become, responsible, independent scientists, equipped with the technical, operational and professional skills needed to thrive in the modern biomedical workforce. This is accomplished through a student-centered curriculum and research experience, and a vigorous program of faculty mentoring, skill development, career advancement and institutional support.

Upon successful completion of their studies, graduates will be able: 

  • to apply their knowledge in practice, 
  • to transfer their knowledge of biology to students and to the society in general, 
  • to satisfy professional requirements for career fields such as biomedicine, laboratory testing, environmental studies, biotechnology, sustainable use of biological resources etc., 
  • to adapt to technological advancements and new knowledge in the field, 
  • to work independently or in groups at an international and/or interdisciplinary level, 
  • generate new ideas and scientific knowledge, 
  • respect diversity, multiculturalism and the natural environment, 
  • demonstrate social, professional and moral responsibility and sensitivity to gender issues, 
  • view themselves as well as others critically, 
  • promote free, inductive and deductive thinking
