    Experimental medicine develops and applies technology and biological models for studying pathogenic mechanisms in human disease. It involves various disciplines (biochemistry, biology, molecular biology, anatomy, physiology, pathology, immunology, genetics and microbiology/virology) that are providing a rapidly growing understanding of the mechanisms that enable the development of pathological processes. The course aims to acquaint students with the technologies and research methodologies in the area of biomedicine and biotechnology based on in vitro and in vivo experimental models and '-omic' approaches, and on their application to the study of cellular and molecular mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis of human disease. The final objective is the formation of high-level scientists able to combine an understanding of biological processes and pathogenic mechanisms through the application of advanced experimental techniques. The programme's specific objectives are:
    1) develop the ability to define problems and devise experiments to solve them in accordance with scientific standards;
    2) study biochemical, molecular and cellular mechanisms in physiopathology using advanced technologies;
    3) develop the ability to critically assess scientific literature;
    4) provide solid, up-to-date knowledge in the specific field;
    5) teach how to conduct independent research, and inform on related ethical implications.

Research involves: 1) the analysis of molecular and cellular aspects of complex physiological processes, 2) the study of pathogenic mechanisms in diseases, 3) the study of biological markers of use in translation of preclinical research to humans.
    - Research applied to the pharmacological-toxicological study of active ingredients: 1) analisi analysis of the activity of active principles, including biological drugs under development or in clinical use, 2) analysis of foods, food supplements and therapeutic plant derivatives, 3) analysis of xenobiotic activity.
     Research applied to the creation of innovative systems for studying pathologies and developing drugs and evaluation of their effects on the population. Basic research on: 1) the development of cellular and animal models also through genetic engineering methodologies, 2) optimising preclinical protocols for simple and complex diseases, including co-morbidities 3) in silico approaches to the study of new drug-toxicology targets, 4) the use of databases and population studies also to assess drug use and outcomes in terms of clinical events.
     Technical-scientific collaboration for revising documentation on active compounds and plant protection products and for drug safety and with other clinical centres.
    In conclusion, students will develop competencies applicable to various areas of academic and industrial research, allowing effective “bench to bed” translation and a multidisciplinary approach essential for public health, with significant socio-economic impact on health.

    The focus of this doctoral programme is on physics in advanced sectors of pure and applied research. Research covers all areas of modern physics, as indicated in the five curricula that aim to facilitate the placement of doctoral students in specific sectors.
    The required basic training is guaranteed by a combination of courses specific to this programme and others exceptionally borrowed from the second cycle degree programme, with examinations at the end of the first year. Moreover, doctoral students are required to attend an International School, with final assessment through a public seminar. The programme also provides various opportunities for discussion and exchanges among students in different programmes, particularly during a workshop at the end of the academic year.
    Training is supplemented by coordinated series of subject- specific conferences (""Physics Colloquia""). At the same time, doctoral students will have to undertake original research under the guidance of a tutor and a co-tutor and report on their progress through annual seminars during which students present their findings to the University's scientific community. This programme also offers internships in Fundamental Physics or High Technology at National and International Laboratories and private Research Laboratories.

    The interuniversity doctoral programme in Political Studies (POLS) integrates coherently empirical-positive and theoretical-normative approaches in political science. The programme therefore provides students with the methodological tools and cultural background common to the various lines of study and research, and a solid specialised preparation in four main areas, which may in some cases overlap:
    a) Institutions and Public Policy;
    b) Political theory and Political philosophy;
    c) International studies;
    d) Political Communication, Public Opinion, and Political Behaviour).
    In order to promote the internationalization of the doctoral programme, all courses will be taught in English.
    The POLS doctoral programme aims to form not only young researchers who can engage in international academia but also professional figures able to undertake research, provide consultancy, coordinate and manage private research centres, think tanks, and political and economic organizations, both private and public, in regional, national and international contexts.
