The Ph.D. course organizes a series of activities, such as the theoretical-practical Bioinformatics course, the statistical methods course, the drug discovery & delivery course, the research integrity course, etc., with the aim of providing PhD students with advanced training in the fields of basic research and translational medicine.
A series of seminar activities will also be scheduled, held by Italian and foreign professors and researchers, on topics not only specific to the PhD curricula, but also transdisciplinary. The goal is to promote and provide PhD students with an innovative and competitive academic program, aimed at stimulating their critical spirit and propensity to face the complexity of knowledge.
