Learning outcomes
The goal of the PhD programme in Surgical Science is to form a researcher able to independently perform basic researches in the fields of molecular biology, cellular biology and genetic relatively to the research topics covered by the Doctorate.
Activities to be carried out by Doctoral candidates
The PhD programme foresees attendance and research activity at the University of Bologna, to be executed in the dermatopathology, pathology and molecular biology labs, in the hemodynamic and ultrasonography clinics, in the wards and in the operating rooms of the Department of Specialistic, Diagnostic and Experimental Medicine, with the aim of actively participate and learn the techniques of cell culture, citopathology and ultrastructural pathology and dermopatology. Moreover, the diagnostic techniques related with the diseases under investigation will be developed. The PhD candidates will have to present and publish the data obtained through their research.
Research training activities compliant with the Doctoral programme's learning outcomes
During the PhD programme, frontal lessons and seminars with the following topics will be held:
- Laboratory techniques of cellculture
- Cytopatology and ultrastructural pathology techniques
- Vascular function evaluation techniques
- Vascular hemodynamic
- Advances in cell biology
- Advances in genetic and Dermatology
Each lesson and seminar will include a practical part (within the limitations due to the current pandemic) to be performed directly by the PhD candidates in order to be able to execute independently these tasks.
Internationalization features
The PhD programme foresees the search of international applicants through the appropriate scientific societies. Lessons and seminars will be hold by foreign teachers and each PhD candidate is assigned to an abroad stage. The PhD programme in Surgical Sciences is part of a Framework-Agreement for awarding double Doctoral Degrees between Università di Bologna e Mekelle University (Ethiopia) - Rep. 762/2020 Prot. n. 5583 del 13/01/2020.
Expected research results and products
The PhD programme foresees the publication of at least 3 original papers per year in International indexed journals, the active participation with abstracts' presentation in at least 2 meetings per year and/or the publication of a chapter in books or monographs. Moreover, 3 papers presentes in PUBMED with impact factor at the end of the three years, are needed.
