The SmaRT Summer Student Research Training Program of the University of Milano-Bicocca is designed to help students to understand the nature of research science.
If you are interested in becoming a Summer Student go to
The Program offers postgraduate students with EU citizenship* of Biochemistry, Biology, Biotechnology, and Medicine a unique opportunity to conduct biomedical research independently under the supervision of renowned scientists.
Students are awarded a grant while experiencing real science and research.
Students will be required to prepare a short report on their work at UNIMIB, which should be submitted at the end of their stay.
Students come for 10 weeks and between May 10th 2010 and July 31st 2010.
Directed work with your supervisor
Most of your time at Unimib will be spent working on a directed project with your supervisor.
Under the guidance of a mentor, students develop an independent research project, implement their plan, analyze the data, and report their results.
The immediate goals are:
• To give you hands-on experience with professional-level work in a biomedical research laboratory.
• To expose you to the techniques relevant to your area interest.
• To complete a portion of a project sufficient to lead to a significant result.
Students are expected to give a short presentation at the end of the term on what they have accomplished during their time here.
Each year, the program consists of about 10 students from around the European Union that are either in the final year of their Master Degree and are considering pursuing a career in Science and entering a PhD programm master.
What does it take to continue a career in biomedical research? Unimib has a very broad range of professionals engaged in biology and medicine in the broadest sense, and you will have an opportunity to learn about what they do and their career paths.
