Overview

The Animal physiology, immunology and developmental biology PhD program from Masaryk University graduates are prepared for further scientific careers at workplaces of basic or applied research at the international level, but also for possible employment in companies with a research background, in medical facilities and as professional lecturers.

The Animal physiology, immunology and developmental biology program at Masaryk University focuses on the research formation of students in the rapidly developing fields of physiology, immunology and developmental biology. Students are trained to conduct research in the areas ranging from cellular to organ level to models of whole animal organisms from cells to human. Modern molecular biology techniques and state-of-the-art imaging techniques are applied. 

The program covers research topics ranging from veterinary through biomedical applications to general basic research issues. In particular, the most represented topic is the research of cellular signaling, which is crucial for understanding the processes controlling embryonic development, tissue differentiation and regeneration, as well as processes of carcinogenesis or immune regulation. The program integrates methodological approaches of molecular biology, molecular embryology and cell biology with morphological and behavioural approaches.
