Description of the programme:
The Doctoral Programme in Cancer and Immunology (PhD) is associated to the Doctorate in Life Sciences (PhD) and to the Doctorate in Medicine and in Sciences (MD-PhD).
This PhD programme focuses on interdisciplinary training, research in basic areas of modern cancer biology and immunology, and possible exciting connections with clinical problems. The research carried out by the participating laboratories covers a wide range of areas in cancer cell biology and immunology, such as: stem cells and cancer stem cells, cancer and development, epithelial-stromal interactions, angiogenesis, cancer epigenetics, chromatin structure and function, cell cycle control mechanisms and DNA repair, cancer immunology, innate and adaptive immunology, cellular and molecular immunology, vaccine development, HIV infection and parasitology (malaria and leishmania).
Strongly motivated students worldwide are selected twice a year through a two-step competitive selection procedure. The expected time to degree is four years. The programme designed for PhD students includes advanced workcourses, lectures, workshops and summer courses (in English), devoted to Cancer and Immunology, plus the possibility of practical training.
