I seminari del Corso di dottorato in Genetica e Biologia Molecolare sono organizzati in cicli inerenti i progressi compiuti nel campo della Biologia Molecolare e della Genetica. Il fine dei seminari è formativo e di incontro con specialisti di settore per la discussione dei dati e la creazione di network professionalizzanti. I dottorandə al termine dei seminari potranno partecipare a delle sessioni “meet the speaker” per una discussione informale sul percorso scientifico, che permetta a studenti e studentesse di avere una visione ampia grazie anche all’esperienza degli oratori di rilievo nazionale ed internazionale.
