Since the start of the Centre for Pharmaceutical Policy and Regulation at Utrecht University, now about a decade ago, we have been running a very successful Professional PhD programme. The programme has reached out to numerous professionals in the pharmaceutical policy, regulation and HTA space. Each year we could enroll 2-3 new PhD candidates, also given the large numbers of high quality applications. This year, however, the Centre is in a transition of embarking for a new, innovative, research strategy (more on this will be published shortly), consuming a lot of our capacity. All this makes us unable to enroll new professional PhD students for the year 2019/2020. We intent to send out a call for applications again for the class 2020/2021. We are looking forward to receive your excellent CVs and motivations then.
