The Ph.D. Program in Humanics cultivates leaders equipped with doctoral-level knowledge and skills in the fields of both biomedical sciences and physical sciences/engineering/informatics, together with the scientific expertise to achieve integration of these fields and the capacity to apply them in wider society. The program aims thereby to address challenges to human life and health and enable the sustainable prosperity of all humankind.
We will welcome students who have studied either biomedical sciences or physical sciences/engineering/informatics, and who are willing to study the other discipline and fuse them together. People who have worked as a physician or an engineer are also very welcome.
