PhD Program in
Biomedical Sciences and Oncology
The PhD program in Biomedical Sciences and Oncology of the University of Turin aims to provide its students with a cultural background as well as with theorical and practical education.
Diseases are studied under a diagnostic, pathogenetic and therapeutic profile, and lab activites are integrated with the clinical ones.
Since PhD students own different scientific backgrounds, they are requested to attend seminars and other educational activities held by experts from different areas.
The PhD Program is organized into six curricula:
Human Genetics, Functional Genomics Applied to Translational Research, Human Oncology, Experimental Pediatrics, Clinical Sciences, Advanced Techinques for the Localization of Human Tumors.
University Departments and structures involved for Doctoral activities are:
Department of Biological and Clinical Sciences
Department of Clinical Phisyopathology
Department of Gynaecological and Obstetrical Disciplines
Department of Genetics, Biology and Biochemistry
Department of Paediatric and Adolescence Sciences
Department of Medical and Surgical Disciplines
Department of Oncological Sciences
the Molecular Biotechnologies Centre
the Lab of Molecular Oncology
The Hospitals involved in the doctoral project (San Giovanni Battista di Torino, Ospedale Infantile Regina Margherita Sant'Anna, San Luigi Gonzaga di Orbassano, IRCC di Candiolo) are regional reference centres for several diseases, and are medical excellence centres well-known across the Country.
The Department of Experimental Oncology of Ifom (Milan) and the Department of Gynaecological, Obstetrical and Paediatric Disciplines of Bologna University also collaborate to carry out doctoral activities.
Our PhD students are expected not only to gain cultural education, but also to acquire the ability to plan and carry our a research project and to write articles in full autonomy.
Instruments available at these structures, along with the possibility to interface patients make sure that PhD students carry out high level research.
