The PhD program in Neuroscience is an interdepartmental, multisite enterprise based at the School of Medicine and Surgery of the University of Milano-Bicocca and 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. With the aim to increase the international impact of our PhD program, a joint doctoral program with the University of Surrey (UK) has also be launched, in the context of an agreement between the University of Milan-Bicocca and the University of Surrey that will enable students enrolled in this specific track to obtain a “dual PhD”, ie the title will be issued by both the universities.
To achieve its goals, the PhD program is organized in 3 tracks:
- Experimental Neuroscience
- Clinical Neuroscience
- International Neuroscience Track
