The doctoral program in research Biomedicine (governed by RD 99/2011 of 28 January) comes from the "Official Programme of doctorate in Cell Biology" (regulated by RD778/1998 of 30 April), which was established at the University of Navarra in academic year 1987-88, and which from the academic year 1999-2000 was followed by the "doctoral program in Cell and Molecular Biology" (regulated by RD1393/2007 of 29 October).
This programme was awarded the accredited specialization of Quality by the Ministry of Education and Science(MCD2004-00346) in 2004, which was renewed continuously until the academic year 2010-11(MEE 2011-0099). In 2011 it was awarded the accredited specialization of Excellence(MEE 2011-0099) by the Ministry of Education for the academic years 2011-12, 2012-13 and 2013-14 (BOE of 20 October 2011).
The following centres and Departments of the University of Navarra are participating in development :
- department of Biochemistry and Genetics
- department of Histology and Anatomy Pathology
- department of Microbiology and Parasitology
research center Applied Medicine (CIMA)
- area of Oncology
- area of Neurosciences
- area of Cardiovascular Sciences
- area of Gene Therapy and Hepatology
research center in Applied Pharmacobiology(CIFA)
Clínica Universidad de Navarra (CUN)
These professors actively participate in thematic networks of research and in research projects funded by both public and private entities. In addition, some of them are integrated in the research and development+i strategy of the University through the PIUNA (Plan de research of the University of Navarra).
Depending on the project of thesis doctoral, professors from other Departments of the area of Sciences of the University of Navarra can participate in the development of the Programme, mainly in the co-direction of thesis doctoral. Likewise, lecturers and PhDs from other national and foreign institutions participate in the Programme, either in the co-direction of doctoral thesis , teaching seminars, mobility actions (both of doctoral students and of the lecturers themselves), participation in thesis tribunals convened to obtain the accredited specialization International in the degree scroll doctoral degree, etc.
There are partnership agreements and relations with other universities and research centres (national and foreign) that favour the mobility of the students on the programme and the internationalization programme. This makes it easier for students on the programme to carry out part of their research work at these centres and contributes greatly to improving and enriching the training of future PhDs.
