UNESCO/UNITWIN Interregional Network on PhD Education and Research in Biophysics, Biotechnology and Environmental Health aims to have an impact on students, and the community as a center of academic excellence, innovation, inquiry, and diversity that contributes to furthering development and advancement of life science research fostering creativity, integrity and community service. Our Network will inspire future scientists to advance knowledge and become responsible leaders in innovation, research and technology management. Our partners are world-leading, research-intensive universities, with strong educational offering, renowned for their innovation and enterprise.
Central to the success of our strategy and underpinning all of our activities are two principles:
Quality: always striving to achieve the highest quality in everything we do.
Internationalization: working with leading universities and building strong partnerships with other leading organizations.
In 2017 UNESCO established “UNESCO/UNITWIN Interregional Network on PhD Education and Research in Biophysics, Biotechnology and Environmental Health in Life Sciences International Postgraduate Educational Center, Yerevan, Armenia. The Center has developed an international reputation for the quality of its research and researchers.
The NETWORK is organized in partnership with the following universities:
Life Sciences International Postgraduate Educational Center, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Bogomoletz Institute of Physiology, University of Tehran, Istanbul Medeniyet University, Mashhad University of Medical Sciences, Maraghah University of Medical Sciences, Jamia Hamdard University, Institute for Health and the Environment, University at Albany, Southampton University.
In compliance with the PhD program (66 USA credits) of Institute for Health and the Environment of University at Albany (USA) and Graduate School of Biological Sciences at Southampton University (UK) the NETWORK prepares modern science leaders in Biophysics, Biotechnology and Environmental Health. Theoretical courses (core and supporting) are realized through distant education system and are conducted by an international team of leading scientists. The PhD students have a unique opportunity to conduct the research part of their dissertation in laboratories of partner universities.
The students will be engaged in the Network’s research activities carried out in the framework of international grants, and will get commensurate remuneration. The best alumni will become faculty members.
Our degrees and courses enable the students to develop critical thinking and independent learning skills that are essential for future leaders and decision makers. Our lecturers are leaders in their fields and offer you the chance to learn about world-changing research as it happens.
The graduates receive a diploma of the international standard according to the regulations of home country as well as the certificate of the Network with an indication of the credits gained.
UNESCO/UNITWIN Network, a joint venture between education and research of Biophysics, Biotechnology and Environmental Health, which offers mainly a three-or-four-year PhD programs developed and delivered with partners utilizing the experience of leading European universities.
