Join us at this PhD course to gain a deeper and wider understanding of state-of-the-art metabolic bone research and take the opportunity to extend your network and enhance the potential for collaboration within and beyond national borders.
You will learn about new concepts and methods in bone biology, endocrine-mediated regulation of bone, and big data. You’ll compare and contrast experimental designs of clinical trials and basic science animal and cell-based studies. You’ll meet new peers with similar interests and work with them to design new collaborative research projects. And, you’ll get to visit the biotech company Ossiform.
