Bergen Biomedical Research School

The Bergen Biomedical Research School (BBRS) is the research school of the Department of Biomedicine

The school is collectively supported by the individual research groups and the national technology platforms at the Department of Biomedicine. The central tenet of BBRS is to provide a broad and excellent platform for PhD education in the area of basic and translational biomedical science, that will supplement the research education offered by the Faculty of Medicine.

The main objectives of BBRS are to:
-offer research opportunities in areas covering basic, translational and clinically related biomedical science
- provide an attractive and stimulating international environment for PhD students
- establish an effective network for PhD students and alumni that will serve to promote interactions and collaborations beyond the PhD-period.
