Degree Designation

DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY(TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE)

Additional advantages of the programme

our program is the first Ph.D. program focusing on translational medicine in Thailand. The program aims to decompartmentalize the traditional research training, where basic scientists are not generally trained to think of the clinical application of their work, and clinicians are often not taught to formulate research studies based on clinical observations. To achieve this, the students will be mentored by both scientists and clinicians to provide the opportunity to focus on the translation of scientific discoveries into the application of diagnosis, prognosis prediction, therapies and cures of human diseases. The curriculum offers a broad exposure to clinical medicine in multidisciplinary fashion in order to fit best with the interest,background and requirement of each student, as well as a strong foundation of knowledge in research design, methodology, and skill in writing proposal for competitive research funding. In addition, medicalrelated emerging fields such as pharmacogenomics, personalized medicine, and bioengineering etc., are open for those students who are interested in such area
