For a future
Generation of scientists
Since the beginning, Champalimaud Research (CR) has defined as one of its main goals the education of future scientists. For this, CR has developed and implemented several educational programmes, advanced courses and workshops. The most relevant is undoubtedly the International Neuroscience & Physiology Doctoral Programme (INPDP), the PhD programme of the Champalimaud Foundation.
International Neuroscience and Cancer Doctoral Programme (INCDP)
A PhD Programme in Neuroscience and Cancer that is a reference in its fields
Created in 2007, the PhD Programme is now in its 15th edition, the last of which started in September 2022.
The International Neuroscience and Cancer Doctoral Programme (INCDP) provides students with an integrative, state-of-the-art education in either Neuroscience or Physiology & Cancer. A central goal of the programme is to foster inquiry and discovery by encouraging active participation, critical thinking, and problem-solving by the students. After an intense course work period, training is focused on graduate research work. Rotations in several labs of choice will allow students to get acquainted with the research being conducted in different laboratories before selecting a group and research project.
PhD students work in a supportive, inclusive, and collaborative environment that trains individuals to participate in the process of scientific inquiry leading to discoveries. Emphasis is given to diverse thinking, positive behaviour support, and well-being as core elements for creativity, critical thinking, and leadership.
Degrees are granted by our academic partners, the Universidade Nova de Lisboa or the Instituto Universitário de Ciências Psicológicas, Sociais e da Vida through our accredited INDP doctoral track.
