CBIOS is a research unit that currently has 30 faculty members, 16 PhD students, a wide range of external collaborators, and over 30 projects running (more at, producing interdisciplinary and translational research in 3 main domains:

  • Pharmacology and Therapeutics (where our lab is inserted)
  • Food Science and Phytochemistry
  • Systems Development and Delivery

Trainees in this CBIOS fellowship will have the opportunity to learn and practice a variety of cell-based techniques useful to assess the impact of (new) drugs on cancer cells’ properties related with the formation of metastases. This includes several in vitro methodologies to evaluate cell proliferation, cell cycle, migration, invasion, and adhesion. Flow cytometry and fluorescence microscopy techniques are also included.

All candidates will be considered, although special attention will be given to individuals who have 1) a solid academic background (master degree as minimum requirement) with special interest in cancer biology and pharmacology, 2) good communication skills (written/spoken English), 3) interest and, if possible,  previous research experience working with human volunteers and/or patients in a physiology research environment, and 4) a keen desire to learn.

Candidates eligible for this CBIOS fellowship will benefit for a “zero” fees policy enjoying all the means offered to the university students. After the 1stsemester evaluation, facilitate access to our PhD (European Title) program in Health Sciences (partnership with U Alcalá, Spain) is possible.
