Chi siamo

Il Dottorato è un corso interdisciplinare con 7 curricula e un obiettivo comune: educare ad una attività di ricerca che, insieme all'impatto scientifico, generi soluzioni e benefici concreti.

Da sempre le Neuroscienze esercitano una attrazione particolare per chi ha interesse e talento per la ricerca. La vastità e la complessità del campo rappresentano una opportunità e una sfida. E se in alcuni periodi la complessità può apparire eccessiva (in particolare per chi è impegnato nella ricerca di nuove terapie), è proprio in questi momenti che il bisogno e la speranza di trovare soluzioni inattese accrescono il fascino di questa area di studio.

Per affrontare tutto questo tutti i curricula del Dottorato in Neuroscienze Clinico-Sperimentali e Psichiatria offrono un training (insegnamento e valorizzazione della capacità di elaborare progetti in modo indipendente) nei rispettivi campi ma anche una attenzione a sviluppare capacità di management della ricerca. Ciascun programma è svolto con lo stesso impegno, condiviso da docenti e studenti.

 

The PhD program is an interdisciplinary course with 7 curricula and one common objective: educate and train future scientists in a research activity that, along with scientific impact , is able to spawn solutions and concrete benefits.

Neuroscience has always been highly attractive for those with interest in, and talent for, research. The scale and the complexity of the field represent both an opportunity and a challenge. If in some periods the complexity may seem overwhelming (particularly for those looking for new therapies), it is indeed in these moments that need and hope to identify unexpected solutions  increase the lure of this research area.

To cope with the above issues, all curricula of the PhD Program in Clinical-Experimental Neuroscience and Psychiatry are tackled with equal commitment, and delivered with special attention to the development of the skills that research management requires.
