Looking for a PhD in Medicine? Find out more about CEINDO CEU’s Doctorate in Translational Medicine.
The PhD Program in Translational Medicine at CEU´s Cardenal Herrera, San Pablo University and Abat Oliba universities focuses on training both clinical and primary researchers with the goal of improving overall quality of care. The program´s translational approach is centered on the two-way flow of samples, trials, and results between the patient and the research laboratory, and viceversa, through a wide range of translational Areas of Research, and diagnostic-therapeutic innovation in molecular and genetic studies on chronic inflammatory, degenerative, and neoplastic diseases, in patients and preclinical experimental disease models.

Integrating a diversity of clinical content with research in oncology is a distinguishing feature of this PhD subarea, which includes specifically tailored course curriculum, activities, locations (Clara Campal HM CIOCC Comprehensive Oncology Center, early and late phase oncology clinical trials programs), and expert oncology supervisors, faculty and researchers.
Researches the biology of tumors in relation to clinical symptoms, identifying new therapeutic targets through the use of in vitro and in vivo models, developing and implementing new technologies in the study of both tumor growth and real-time responses to treatment, and designing new personalized therapies, with the ultimate goal of improving the quality of life of the patient.
The main objective of the program is to provide the neurobiological, physiopathological and therapeutic foundations of neurodegenerative disease, with a special emphasis on persons with mobility disorders. Students will receive basic and clinical training related to the anatomic-functional organization of movement control, behavior, and emotions, as well as the main cognitive alterations that characterize neurodegenerative processes.
Researches the molecular and pathophysiological factors involved in neurodegenerative disease related to ageing, with the aim of finding new mechanisms of action and therapeutic targets for the development of innovative neuroprotective therapies, through either pharmacological or pharmacogenomic approaches.
This subarea of research provides training at the highest scientific level based on a cutting-edge multidisciplinary research methodology. The team of excellent teaching and research professionals, all with extensive and proven experience in different fields of psychology, represents a wide range of theoretical approaches and interests. All of this accumulated knowledge will enable the candidate to design and carry out high quality research work in the field of psychology.
The PhD Program in Cardiovascular and Metabolic Diseases focuses on training students wishing to learn more about the epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of the world’s leading cause of death: cardiovascular disease. The program trains students to carry out high-quality translational clinical research and produce improved health outcomes.
After completing three prior phases: resectioning (amputations), reconstruction, and replacement (arthroplasties or prostheses), Surgery has now entered a new era called biological or regenerative surgery, or the fourth R. The regenerative phase requires that clinicians and surgeons possess the in-depth knowledge of cells, tissues and systems, anchored by comprehensive clinical trial methodology, necessary to transfer research from the lab over to the patient.
The research focuses on oncologic surgery, including: prognostic factors in pancreatic cancer; neoadjuvant therapy in pancreatic cancer; impact on patient survival of vascular resectioning due to pancreatic cancer; functional and volumetric assessment of the residual liver in patients undergoing extreme liver surgery; prognostic factors in neuroendocrinal tumors of the pancreas, treatment with stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) as a therapeutic alternative to surgical resectioning in pancreatic neuroendocrinal tumors; oncological aspects of robotic surgery in digestive tumors; isolated liver perfusion in the treatment of irreversible bilobar liver metastases.
Studies the etiology and factors of prognostic value in pathology as a means to develop new therapeutic strategies that minimize the impact of disease. This Area of Research takes a multidisciplinary approach spanning a wide range of therapies: from pharmacology to healthcare. The field comprises studies in pharmacology and therapeutics at the molecular, cellular and physiological level, and their relation to inflammatory pathologies, chronic pathologies, morbidity in old age, musculoskeletal diseases, etc.
This Subarea is aimed specifically at nurses who wish to carry out research projects related to healthcare promotion and prevention, innovation for person-centered care, intervention in risk groups, and bioethical aspects related to clinical practice.
Physiotherapy follows a holistic approach to personal health based on simple health maintenance and recovery procedures. This subarea constitutes a therapeutic alternative to pharmacology as it promotes disease prevention through an evaluation of the patient´s functional state, based on physical, psychological, and social aspects. Physiotherapy is a basic care tool in a variety of fields, such as geriatrics, physical and psychological disabilities, and sport.
Experimental and clinical immunopathology covers topics related to:
Spans all disciplines, with a special focus on those involved in restorative dentistry, oral surgery, implantology, periodontics, orthodontics, infectious and tumor pathology, dentistry and preventive medicine, the history of dentistry, etc. After completing the training period, the candidate will be able to design research projects aimed at identifying and solving dental problems from the broadest point of view.
The Doctorate Program in Translational Medicine is tailored to Graduates in Medicine, Biology, Biochemistry, Pharmacy, and other university graduates from the Health Sciences with an interest in Research in Translational Medicine.
In addition, an adequate level of English is encouraged.
Students exempt from additional training:
Given the program´s translational nature, it is recommended that students hold a Master’s degree from a Spanish or foreign university, in the following areas:
Students who have not completed prior training required for admission must, upon successful enrollment, attend any additional training deemed necessary by the Academic Committee.
