PhD in MICROBIOLOGY, IMMUNOLOGY, INFECTIOUS DISEASES AND TRANSPLANTS
The PhD Course in Microbiology, Immunology, Infectious diseases, Transplantation and Related Diseases (MIMIT) provides an educational training aimed at the acquisition of basic microbiological and immunological knowledge and at the deepening of some specific topics, with particular attention to the molecular aspects of pathogenesis process involved in the infectious diseases and the host's immune response.
The PhD student is supported in the research activity by a tutor who has the main task of leading him to acquire autonomy in the creation of a manuscript (knowledge of the literature, drafting of protocols, experimentation, critical interpretation of results, and identification of a journal for publication). It is also desirable to introduce the doctoral student to the necessary steps for fund access or raising as well as to write a project, develop and make reports.
During scheduled meetings, students are required to present and discuss, in the presence of the tutor, the obtained results.
Students who have spent a period of at least 6 months in another European Country to carry out research activities achieve the European PhD Label. We will try to make it possible whenever the appropriate conditions are met
A good knowledge of both spoken and written English is required to access the Course. This is to allow both the necessary bibliographic updating and the drafting of manuscripts, as well as the possibility of actively participating in congresses, seminars, and specific meetings. The interaction with foreign doctoral students in the laboratories also takes place fluently in English.
Knowledge of the principal methods of word processing and construction of databases and electronic presentations is also required.
The PhD School is almost entirely formed by Professors of the University of Tor Vergata, with different specific skills, whose integration allows the PhD students to a complete and cutting-edge educational path from the scientific point of view.
