Biomedical curriculum

This curriculum aims to study biomedical aspects related to the critical ages of life from birth to death, developing along a path from childhood, adolescence, and adult and senile life.

​PhD students attending this curriculum will conduct their research in three possible areas: dealing with biological mechanisms, dealing with risk and preventive factors, and dealing with clinical and prognostic aspects, including pharmacological aspects and organizational management aspects.

​The study in these three areas may include methodologies and tools from biochemical biology, molecular biology, physiology, pharmacology, and medicine (pediatrics, internal medicine, neurology, geriatrics, and epidemiology), with a strong emphasis on the coexistence of the various approaches and their integration with socio-demo-psychological aspects.

​Special attention will be given to the issue of healthy aging and psychophysical well-being throughout the life course. Research activities may include, among others, laboratory activities (in silico, in vitro, in vivo), clinical studies (observational or experimental), population etiological studies, and functional studies. A gender approach and a focus on health inequalities will also be emphasized.
