Europe-wide programme paving the way for new approaches in medicine
The COVID-19 pandemic has shown the key role physician-scientists have in finding innovative solutions in the medicine and healthcare fields. The EU-funded EMERALD project aims to establish an international doctoral programme to nurture physician-scientists in their pursuit to advance research, personalised medicine and healthcare in Europe. Through this programme, 24 medical doctors will be selected to undertake a PhD in cutting-edge research in seven European centres of excellence in life sciences and biomedicine. The skills and knowledge they will gain will help bridge the gap between laboratory research and patient care.
