The network includes 8 Italian Research Centers of excellence and 7 Italian Universities.
Research centers are distributed over three different cities:
5 in Milan (HT, IEO, IFOM, IIT, INGM)
2 In Naples (Ceinge, TIGEM)
1 in Turin (IIGM)
All research centers act as school sites and host the SEMM PhD students. Science covers virtually every aspect of modern Cell Biology and Molecular Biology, both from the basic and applied research points of view, and is supported by know-how extending from functional genomics to developmental model systems.
The Universities of the network are distributed along the Italian territory from north to south. Each university is well represented within the SEMM teaching body. Professors from the different Universities can act as tutors of the SEMM students and can host them in their University Departments.
