Overview and objectives of the PhD course

The PhD program is aimed to the development of a research project in the field of bioactive substances, in
particular drugs and health products. The general research areas developed can be summarized as follow:
• research of drugs through rational design, synthesis or extraction of active molecules from natural sources;
• understanding of the biochemical, physiological and pharmacological mechanisms of action of these molecules;
• research of formulations of medicinal specialties;
• research of the impact that bioactive substances have on man and the environment.
This PhD course, primary focused on the study of bioactive substances, brings together different disciplines and methodologies, both in reference to the Italian CUN areas (03 and 05) and specific ERC areas (Life Science, Physical Science and Engineering). The highly interdisciplinary content of the research carried out at the Department of Pharmacy and therefore in the PhD Course makes fruitful collaborations among researchers from the various scientific disciplines, as well as with national and international research groups. In line with this, doctoral students are strongly encouraged to
carry out part of their research project at highly qualified foreign institutions. In addition, the Doctoral Course, in order to ensure a complete and correct interdisciplinary training, provides highly qualified training activities, including:
• Cycles of monographic lessons held by PhD inner and external teachers ;
• Seminars held by national and international teachers of high scientific level;
• Participation in national and international schools addressed to doctoral students, summer and/or winter schools;
• Organization of thematic workshops.
