Applications are NOW OPEN to the MorphoPHEN Erasmus Mundus master’s degree. Deadline will be March 11th. The consortium will provide 19 grants for students this year.
Human Diseases Models Morphological Phenotyping (MorphoPHEN) consists of an integrated and interdisciplinary Erasmus Mundus Joint Master. It is conceived to alleviate the real shortage of experts in morphological mouse phenotyping, which is needed to generate a positive impact of preclinical biomedicine and improve human translatability (from the bench to the bedside).
MorphoPHEN is a one-year master (60 ECTS), divided in two semesters of 30 ECTS each. It brings knowledge on the four main branches necessary to analyze mouse disease models morphologically: Anatomy and Embryology, Pathology, Imaging, Deep Learning. and Artificial Intelligence.
In addition to the MorphoPHEN partner universities (Autonomous University of Barcelona, University of Naples Federico II, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and the Veterinary School of Lisbon), 11 associated partners embedded in the biomedicine sector, including other universities, research institutions and companies have come together to produce an educational program to teach mouse morphological phenotyping.
