Why in Parma?

The second-cycle degree course in Genomic, Molecular and Industrial Biotechnology is part of the Department of Chemistry, Life Sciences and Environmental Sustainability, which was selected by the MUR for the second time as a 'Department of Excellence'. The Department receives extraordinary funding for research in innovative sectors including the new frontiers of biotechnology.

The course in Genomic, Molecular and Industrial Biotechnology will captivate students due to the high 'transversality' of the curriculum, which is equally divided between biomolecular, genomic and chemical sciences and technologies. A course which maximises the fields of employment of graduates, from genomics-based diagnostics, to molecular medicine, to 'green chemistry' and alternative biomass sources.

Highlights include:

  • the high scientific qualification and extensive network of international contacts and collaborations of the course lecturers;
  • the strong focus on in-course guidance, especially in identifying highly qualified internship placements in public and private research organisations, companies and foreign research centres;
  • the opportunity for advanced post-graduate training provided by the Doctorate in Biotechnology and Biosciences, available within the same Department.
