Integramm: International Graduate Program in Molecular Medicine

INTEGRAMM (International Graduate Program in Molecular Medicine) is a EU-funded multi-site initiative to promote Early-stage training (EST) of graduate students at the European level. The Program is coordinated by Vita-Salute San Raffaele University and involves the participation of two Academic sites (Vita-Salute San Raffaele University, IT and the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid, ES), two Research Institutes (Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research, UK and the Institute for Research in Biomedicine, CH) and one industrial site (BioXell SpA, IT). Throughout the duration of the Program, 10 long-term (three-year) and a number of short-term fellows will be admitted and will attend any one of the participating laboratories within the above Institutes, to develop a highly supervised and individually tailored research and training program. Enrolled students will develop their training under the premises of the MAIN (Migration and Inflammation) EU Network of Excellence, of which the Institutions participating in this Program are prominent members. Independently of the site they choose for their research training, the long-term fellows will be registered as graduate students in the International Graduate Program in Molecular Medicine of Vita-Salute University (Milan, IT) and will be awarded an international PhD title at the end of the three-year period (or longer if required). Whenever possible, co-tutoring agreements will be established with the other Universities participating in the Program to award a joint PhD title.

INTEGRAMM provides an exciting opportunity for multidisciplinary training in Molecular Medicine in a highly international environment. Besides the research project carried out in the host lab, students are given formal training (lecture courses and retreats) organized by each of the participating Institutes on a rotational basis, along with the intramural activities (journal club sessions, seminars and lectures) offered by the host institutes.
