Educational goals

The Doctoral Programme in Biomolecular Sciences aims to:

  • form experts on Biology and Biotechnology able to practice their skills in an interdisciplinary way, helping the development in innovative fields which often require multidisciplinary knowledge;
  • provide the skills to perform independently, with originality, creativity and scientific rigor, research of high quality at Universities as well as public or private institutions such as industry oriented to basic research, biomedical research, biotechnology and to molecular-based clinical diagnosis.

The Doctoral Programme is activated by the Department of Cellular, Computational and Integrative Biology

A protocol of cooperation, which includes support for teaching and research as well as specific scholarships, has been established with the following research institutes:

  • Biochemistry
  • Bioinformatics
  • Cancer Genomics
  • Computational Biology
  • Developmental Biology
  • Genetics
  • Gene Therapy
  • Lipidomics and Biomembranes
  • Metabolomics and Metabolic Imaging
