PhD in Natural Sciences: Biology

PhD studies in the area of Biology at LSU started in 1993. In the period of 1993 – 2020, 88 doctors of science were trained. In 2011, joint Doctoral Studies in Biology at Lithuanian Sports University, with the participation of the University of Tartu (Estonia) were launched. Doctoral Studies in Biology at Lithuanian Sports University, with the participation of the University of Tartu (Estonia)  consolidated research in the area of Biology, and they ensure more integrated and substantial investigations of scientific problems in biology.

Research of doctoral students in Biological Sciences involves many branches of biology: Physiology / Biomechanics / Bioinformatics / Histology / Genetics / Animal anatomy and morphology / Animal physiology / Endocrinology / Immunology / General pathology / Gerontology / Biochemistry / Neurology / Anatomy / morphology / Epidemiology / Molecular biophysics.

The duration of doctoral studies is 4 years.
