I am a first year PhD student of the Scuola Superiore Meridionale program in Genomic and Experimental Medicine at TIGEM. This PhD program allowed me to experience three two-months laboratory rotations and therefore have the chance to work with different potential supervisors. I had the possibility to get to know the members of the different labs and the ongoing research projects.
This period represented a great opportunity to learn different points of view in the field, to develop personal and professional connections and to expand my knowledge and skills. Choosing a lab for your PhD can be a tough decision but as soon as I arrived at TIGEM I encountered a collaborative scientific community willing to support me and guide me through a more conscious and informed choice.

I‘ll never forget my first day at TIGEM. From the first moment, I realized the importance to joining a scientific community like that of TIGEM. I found a place with great ambition, which gives opportunities for self-improvement and interaction with the international scientific field. From that moment I understood that TIGEM could give me the opportunity to do important things.
