About the Programme
The Clinical and Experimental Sciences programme of the University of Padua fosters a multidisciplinary approach with particular emphasis on Biomedical Sciences, combining with Genetic Epidemiology, Anatomic Pathology, Molecular Biology, Transplantation Medicine, Pathophysiology, Diagnostics and Therapy.
The main theme of the Phd course is to identify new biomarkers of acute and chronic diseases through translational approaches to physiopathology, diagnosis, treatment and prognosis in order to develop new diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms and prognostic models with relevant impacts for the public health.
The PhD program includes:
- An initial training course concerning common basic methodologies for all Curricula, in particular focusing on Genetics, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology fields.
- A second stage that trains top-level individuals to understand clinical processes and experience laboratory techniques. Participation to training Courses, Conferences and Meetings in the specific sectors of their specialization is encouraged.
- A final stage that provides the methodology to carry out high level research. The doctoral students will take part of a research project issued by the different Departments, but they will be encouraged to manage, coordinate and conclude their own basic and/or translational research project. Students may also have the opportunity to do a research stay abroad for a variable period of 6-18 months. The Ph.D. program ends drawing up a Ph.D. thesis under the supervision of an experienced researcher and successfully defending it.
