The PhD programme in Complex Systems for Life Sciences offers a strong interdisciplinary training through research projects in the area of Systems Biology. We use a combined computational and experimental approach supported by theoretical modelling, rooted in theoretical physics, engineering and mathematics. The full integration between biomedicine and exact sciences is the ground of contemporary approaches to complex biological systems. This curriculum is for Graduate Students in Biology, Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics, Medicine and Computer Science. Research projects include Genomics, Transcriptomics, Epigenomics, molecular regulatory networks and mathematical modeling of phenomena ranging from basic cell biology problems up to population genetics, with a major focus on human disease including cancer.
