The activities planned in this curriculum aim to provide excellent training, with high-profile skills in biocellular and biomolecular research. Special attention will be paid to vital processes closely inherent to human well-being and health, such as nutrition, cell-to-cell communication, inflammation, regeneration and cell differentiation. Topics developed will include microorganisms that coexist with humans in physiology and pathology, their physiology, biology and ecology, and strategies for their control. The processes involved will be studied at the molecular and cellular levels, and then move up to tissue organization where applicable.


The activities provided in the curriculum aim to provide excellent theoretical and practical training in the study of animal and plant organisms and the environment in which they live. The training has its focus in the study of the physical, chemical and biological processes that regulate organism-environment interaction, with attention to the development of bio-ecological models and indicators that allow tracking the environmental quality of ecosystems and defining the sustainability of production processes and the use of natural resources. Particular attention is devoted to the biocoenosis of inland waters and Apennine environments that characterize the region, including Lake Trasimeno, for the understanding of functional processes that ensure ecosystem services and biodiversity conservation, also with the aim of promoting research on effective strategies for adaptation to climate change and mitigation of anthropogenic impacts.
