Faculty of Biology & Medicine

The Faculty of Biology and Medicine covers three disciplines that share the same interest for living beings, but with three distinct, albeit complementary approaches and cultures. Biology looks at nature in all its forms and focuses its academic activity on basic research. Medicine and Nursing Sciences, instead, are interested in humans, in their totality as living beings, whether healthy or in physical or psychic distress. Their activities are focused on the care of patients and clinical research.
