European School of Molecular Medicine - PhD in Systems Medicine

PhD in Systems Medicine

In the multi and interdisciplinary scientific environment of the European School of Molecular Medicine (SEMM) network, that includes 8 Italian Research Centers and 7 Italian Universities, we offer 72 positions in the context of the innovative PhD program in Systems Medicine.

The PhD Program aims to train young and motivated researchers in the wide field of modern Biomedicine. The general idea is that complex systems, such as diseases and their pathogenesis, cannot be understood taking into account a single point of view. The expertise of different scientists, biologists, medical doctors, computer scientists, physicists and mathematicians are needed to provide new insights. Due to its peculiarity, the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MUR) recognized the PhD program in Systems Medicine as a PhD program of National Interest.

Duration: 4 years

Language of instructions: English

Research areas: Biology of Ageing, Cancer Metabolism, Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, Developmental and Stem Cell Biology, Drug discovery and design, Epigenetics, Experimental Pathology, Human Genetics and Genomics, Immunology, Medical Humanities, Microbiology and Microbiome, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Molecular Oncology, Neurobiology, Omics Sciences, Structural Biology.
