Welcome to the PhD program in Medical Life Science and Technology!

The PhD program “Medical Life Science and Technology” is a structured postgraduate program within the TUM School of Medicine aimed at students with a background in medicine, engineering or life sciences. The key research areas represented in the program are oncology, neuroscience, immunology/infection, biomedical imaging, cardiovascular research, and molecular medicine.

The main purpose of the program is to give students a thorough scientific training and the tools to become successful and independent scientists. Although the program is mainly focused on specialist knowledge, additional extra-disciplinary preparation complement the training. Skills gained from completing the PhD, including project management, analytical and communication skills, allow the PhD graduates not only to pursue a career in academia, but also to aim for a higher-level non-academic job in industry or healthcare.

The PhD program is part of the TUM Medical Graduate Center and the TUM Graduate School. Students enrolled in the PhD program become members of the Graduate School and benefit from its offers, such as financial support for international research activities.
