Architecture function and dynamics in Life Sciences a European Doctoral Programme

ArchiFun is an international doctoral programme (DP), built within the Arqus Alliance, that specially focuses on the relationships between structure, function and dynamics at all levels, from the atoms up to cells, organisms and ecosystems. ArchiFun DP research topics are related to Horizon Europe’s Destination 5: "Unlocking the full potential of new tools, technologies and digital solutions for a healthy society”.

The programme will train 23 doctoral fellows in six topics:

  1. Host-pathogen interactions;
  2. Mechanisms of bacterial resistance and cancer onsets;
  3. Neurodegenerative and autoimmune diseases;
  4. Translational research in prevalent diseases;
  5. Physiology and ecology;
  6. Neurosciences and cognition.

ArchiFun DP will pave the way to a European Doctoral School, while training responsible new citizens of the world and future leaders. ArchiFun will give them the instruments and attitude to excel over and beyond Life Sciences, once back in their own countries or wherever else in the world, whether in academia, public or private sector of activities.
