Deputy-Director: Prof. Anna Cereseto

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.

Students have to undergo a public selection to be admitted to the programme.
The Doctoral Programme in Biomolecular Sciences is a 3 year course that includes

  • research and study activities
  • attendance to courses and seminar cycles
  • research and study period abroad.

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