38 PhD positions in Systems Medicine

European School of Molecular Medicine (SEMM) is a private Foundation for higher education in biomedicine established in 2001, which aims to promote training and research within emerging sectors of biomedicine, such as genomics, molecular medicine and medical humanities. It collaborates with the University of Milan and Naples (awarding bodies) and operates within centers of excellence and promotes the integration of basic research and clinical practice. Science covers virtually every aspect of modern Cell and Molecular Biology, from both the basic and applied research points of view, is highly multidisciplinary and is supported by know-how extending from functional genomics to developmental model systems.

SEMM's 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 must give their contribution to provide new insights.

The PhD program in Systems Medicine includes the following curricula:

Molecular Oncology
Human Genetics
Computational Biology
Medical Humanities
