PhD research activity is carried out within a research group belonging to the participating Institution (University Departments and the CNR Institute). The research project will be approved by the Faculty members. Students may work for a period in other laboratories in Italy or in a foreign country, performing a work related to their research project, with the approval of the Faculty members.

To stimulate and facilitate collaboration and discussion among students, the organization of student meetings is encouraged, during which they may exchange practical and theoretical knowledge. Moreover, at the end of each academic year, students present the results of their research activity to all the other students and Faculty members. Thanks to the many collaborations with Italian and foreign Universities, students can participate at informal meetings on the design of the research project and the results obtained.

Students must follow the courses within the PhD program and participate in the seminars organized by the participating Institutions. Each year, two types of courses are organized: courses directed to students of specific years (core courses on: Biostatistics; Bioinformatics; Immunocytochemistry, Optical and Electronic Microscopy Techniques; Scientific English writing) and advanced courses for all students, covering the main topics of the PhD program (Genetics, Molecular Biology, Cellular Biology, Medical Pathology and Genetics, Microbiology and Virology). Each course lasts about 20 hours. Every year, all core courses are organized together with three out of the eight advanced courses. Courses are distributed over the three years of the PhD program as described below. Moreover, every year, the Institute of Molecular Genetics of CNR, organizes the "Arturo Falaschi Lecture" on emerging genetic and molecular biology topics. The lecture is dedicated to Prof. Arturo Falaschi's memory, who was the first IGM director from 1970 to 1987.

Every year, students must follow the core courses and two advanced courses. By the end of September, students must take the exams. For core courses, usually there is a test prepared by the teachers; for the advanced course exams, students are usually required to prepare a presentation on one of the topics covered in the course and present it to their fellow students and teachers.

The PhD thesis is in English.
