Education

To train the next generation of researchers and clinicians in infectious diseases using novel interdisciplinary approaches, we will establish a joint graduate school “Health and Infection, Basel” (HIB) between the Natural Sciences and Medical Faculties of the University of Basel. HIB will host 25-30 students who will be selected by a joint committee and who will rotate through laboratories representing at least two of the three major research fields (clinical research, engineering, microbiology) during their first year of PhD. To attract the very best students, HIB will grant fellowships on a competitive basis, which will enable students to join their research group of choice for 3 years. 

As part of the training activities, we will organize an annual, interdisciplinary boot camps and workshops on antibiotic research for Bachelor and Master students. 

We will also strengthen further-education activities at the University of Basel by establishing a Certificate of Advanced Studies in the use of 2D- and 3D-micro-tissue models for antimicrobial research and development.
