PhD program in Neuroscience

The call for admission to the 34th cycle of the PhD program in Neuroscience
at the University Milano-Bicocca is now open!


The PhD Program

The PhD program in Neuroscience is an interdepartmental, multisite enterprise based at the School of Medicine and Surgery of the University of Milano-Bicocca. Its mission is to provide an environment of excellence for training in research based on the coexistence and cooperation of Italian and International Universities, Hospital-based research centers, Pharmaceutical Industry with a strong vocation to innovation and a European research center with unique opportunities in the field of X-ray imaging and irradiation. This mission is pursued through the interaction between researchers and clinicians, who work in academic or industrial reality, and that belong to all the areas that constitute the more modern concept of the “world of Neuroscience”. Strong commitment to international collaboration and the development of joint research programs allowing a period of study/research in partner laboratories distributed in the most prestigious foreign universities are cornerstones of the program.

To achieve its goals the PhD program is organized in 3 tracks:

  1. Molecular and Cellular Biology
  2. Experimental Neurosciences
  3. Clinical Neurosciences
