PhD Program in Genetics, Molecular and Cellular Biology
Over the last two decades, productive interactions among the different biological disciplines greatly increased understanding of the main molecular mechanisms underlying human, animal, microorganism and plant vital functions. This multidisciplinary approach not only amplified basic knowledge, but also allowed the development of new biotechnological applications that are having a major impact in the fields of human health, nutrition and energy. The three-year PhD program in Genetics, Molecular and Cellular Biology offers an extremely variegated and multidisciplinary approach to investigate biological issues al the molecular and cellular levels.

This PhD program was established in 2011 on the occasion of the 650th anniversary of the University of Pavia, through the fusion of previously existing and well established PhD programs at the University of Pavia, which have trained doctoral students for decades in different areas of Biology.

About 50 faculty members from different Departments of the University of Pavia (Biology and Biotechnology, Clinical-Surgical, Diagnostic and Pediatric Sciences, Molecular Medicine, Public Health and Experimental and Forensic Medicine) and from the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the National Research Council (IGM-CNR) participate in the program with different and complementary competences in the fields of human and animal genetics, molecular and cellular biology, human pathology, microbiology, virology and plant physiology. At the moment 38 PhD students (cycles XXX - XXXIII) are enrolled in the PhD course.

The integrated approach offered by the program has the objective of training young researchers who are capable to tackle challenges that arise from the “new biology”, a modern discipline aiming at a deeper understanding of complex biological phenomena by means of multiple expertise. PhD students, through lab research activity and dedicated and well defined courses (12 courses, all in English) in the three-year program, have the opportunity to acquire knowledge on frontline topics and technologies, an essential background to perform high-level research in our rapidly evolving society. The PhD thesis is also in English.

    The call for application to the PhD Course for the academic year 2019/2020 (XXXV Cycle) is OPEN
