Doctoral Program in Applied and Environmental Microbiology

The Doctoral Program in Applied and Environmental Microbiology (DP_AEM) is jointly organized by Universidade do Minho (UMinho), Universidade de Lisboa (UL) and Universidade Nova de Lisboa (UNL) enrolling research centres with a long-standing tradition of excellence in research in biosciences.

DP_AEM is a flexible, state-of-the-art, research oriented program targeted to train highly motivated students offering a high-quality, versatile and up-to-date formative offer in Microbiology. DP_AEM is focused on the study of microorganisms, instrumental to further the understanding of fundamental mechanisms of life and develop novel applications in industrial biotechnology, environmental restoration, low carbon energy production, food industry, and in human and animal health. The program was designed aiming at filling the gap between the academia scientific knowledge and the industry demand.
