Research laboratories and workstations available for doctoral students

Ph.D. students use workstations at the laboratories and other rooms of the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, provided dicomputers, printers and access to the web network.

All the faculty mentors of the doctoral students make their research laboratories, equipped with equipment described in the specific paragraph and pertaining to the various research areas of Pharmacology and Toxicology,namely, molecular, cellular, neurobehavioral, and neurochemical, fully available to the doctoral students.
Specifically, the following is the list of research laboratories available and surveyed on the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology website:

Fluorescence microscopy laboratory
Laboratory of molecular biology
Laboratory of Developmental Neuropsychopharmacology
Laboratory of Neuropsychopharmacology molecular, behavioral and modulation of glial cell activity at centraland peripheral levels.
Laboratory of neuro- and onco-pharmacology.
Laboratory of Neuropsychopharmacology of normal and pathological motivational systems.
Laboratory of Neuropharmacology of Pain
Laboratory of Pharmacology of oxidative stress and free radicals
Laboratory of Pharmaco-toxicology of natural substances
Laboratory of Phytosurveillance
Laboratory of Pharmacognosy and Nutraceutics
Laboratory of Neuropsychopharmacology of the endocannabinoid system and their lipid analogs
Laboratory of Pharmacology of the Enteric Nervous System
Laboratory of Neuropsychopharmacology of gut-brain transmission
Laboratory of Cellular and Molecular Neuropharmacology
Laboratory of Cellular Pharmacology
Laboratory of Behavioral Neuropsychopharmacology

In addition, enclosure rooms for the use of experimental animals, as well as rooms equipped for surgical procedures and behavioral tests on experimental animals, are available for the research activities of Ph.D. students, under the close supervision of the faculty mentors who are authorized managers of the relevant experimental protocols.
Ph.D. students who will use experimental animals will be appropriately trained and certified, according to current regulations. This will also be made possible thanks to the adherence of many faculty members of the college to the Center for Preclinical Experimentation and Animal Welfare Research and Services (SPBA), directed by Prof. Cristina Limatola, Full Professor of Physiology in the Department of Physiology andPharmacology to which the Ph.D. program itself belongs.
Also in support of the training of Ph.D. students on animal experimentation, in order to use the laboratories pertinent to this activity, it should be noted that a member of the Ph.D. faculty has recently been appointed as a member of the CommitteeOrdinator National Committee for the Protection of Animals Used for Scientific Purposes.
