Nanyang Technological University and Karolinska Institutet Sweden launch new Ph.D. program
Date:9/17/2009

Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Singapore and the Swedish medical university Karolinska Institutet (KI), today announce a new collaboration to jointly offer a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme in Biomedical Science.

This collaboration with one of Europe's largest medical universities is the latest initiative by NTU to strengthen its ties with world renowned universities. It is a testimony of the high stature NTU enjoys among the leading universities of the world. The collaboration is a major milestone for NTU as it is the University's first joint PhD programme in Biomedical Science and its third joint PhD programme with top European universities in just five months. Apart from KI, NTU separately signed agreements with Imperial College, London in May 09 and with Technische Universitt Mnchen (TUM), Germany in Aug 09.

"The launch of this joint PhD programme enforces NTU's ambitions and strategy to strengthen its research base in the biomedical and health sciences in line with the priorities of the NTU Board," says NTU Provost Professor Bertil Andersson. "I am pleased to note that Karolinska Institutet, a world renowned medical university, is our partner for NTU's first joint PhD programme in Biomedical Science research. Together, we will build on and strengthen existing research projects between KI and NTU professors, foster collaborations that can capitalise on KI's strength in translational research, and expose students to cutting-edge bioscience investigations aimed at improving the health of people. I am confident of the success of this programme."

"I think the fact that NTU now has three joint PhD programmes with three very distinguished universities, Imperial, TUM, and now KI, speaks volumes of the leaps NTU has made in today's very competitive university landscape," adds Professor Andersson.

For KI, the joint PhD programme with NTU is an important step in its effort to establish strong long-term research co
