Nothing in biology makes sense except in the light of evolution
“Seen in the light of evolution, biology is, perhaps, intellectually the most satisfying and inspiring science. Without that light it becomes a pile of sundry facts some of them interesting or curious but making no meaningful picture as a whole”  (Theodosius Dobzhansky The American Biology Teacher, March 1973)

The program offers a unique multidisciplinary training experience leading to a Doctorate degree. The Biology Department, in partnership with private and public institutions in the Rome area, have formed a Program that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries to offer the student the appropriate interdisciplinary research training and to enrich the plurality of knowledge. The Scientific Board is made of experts of various scientific fields, and graduate students can select from research opportunities in areas as Anthropology, Applied Biology and Biochemistry, Botany, Ecology, Genetics, Microbiology, Parasitology, Physiology and Zoology. The main goal of the program consists in enabling students to become independent, creative, and productive researchers, by cultivating their skills in a multidisciplinary environment. Specialized courses are programmed as well as ad hoc seminars in research management, research & funding systems, exploitation of research results and intellectual property.
