Programme director: doc. Mgr. Tomáš Doležal, Ph.D.
Integrative Biology PhD programme brings together fields of biology that use similar methodological approaches from the areas of molecular and cell biology, molecular to organ physiology and biochemistry, immunology, infectious biology, proteomics, genetics and genomics, supported by bioinformatics and mathematical modelling. The programme covers molecular cell and developmental biology and physiology in mouse and insect models, plants and unicellular organisms, molecular phylogenetics, evolutionary cytogenetics and molecular integrative physiology and immunology with selected biomedical problems.

Doctoral students seminar rules
In our program we have more than 50 PhD students, half of whom are from abroad. Students participate in cutting-edge science projects; their work has recently appeared for example in eLife and Current Biology journals (see Research Achievements). Students benefit from the excellent facilities of the faculty and several institutes of the Academy of Sciences, they have access to one of the best-equipped centers of electron microscopy in the Czech Republic, confocal microscopes, metabolomic and proteomic centers (there is for example “Bruker Daltonics timsTOF Pro“ equipment for proteomics, which is unique in Central Europe). Students can choose from a variety of courses and each week attend a departmental seminar presented by invited speakers. Once a year we organize Departmental Retreat for PhD students, which is a great opportunity to present their work and meet for the whole weekend in a very informal atmosphere. Every year we organize for students Image Competition.
