Bergen Biomedical Research School

The overall aim of the research school is to facilitate a PhD education of high quality. The school organizes courses and seminars that are relevant and of interest to the candidates.

Technology platforms MIC and PROBE are available to any and all Norwegian higher education institutions.

MIC and PROBE is organized as core facilities. The idea behind the core facility concept is to make sophisticated scientific equipment and highly specialized personnel available to a wide range of users. In turn, core facility users contribute financially to operational expenses through paying a set fee for services rendered.

On the right track

Working in a research group with actual scientific problems has been a great change for me, which I have enjoyed a lot. It's really exciting.
