Lectures and Seminars
Students admitted to the PhD Programme in Translational Medicine have access to a large body of lectures, seminars and courses that students may sustain directly their research project or broaden their scientific education and background. The so-called School for Doctoral Studies of the University of Pavia brings together all teaching relevant to PhD studies at the University of Pavia and PhD students enrolled in the PhD Programme in Translational Medicine will surely take advantage of all valuable teaching opportunities on offer.
Two additional levels of teaching are of interest to future research students active in the PhD Programme in Translational. A number of members of the scientific board of the PhD Programme in Translational Medicine are regularly involved in the organisation of research seminars, workshop and courses within their respective departments (Molecular Medicine or Internal Medicine). From 1st October 2017 these activities will be advertised not only on the relevant departmental pages but also on this page, in order to inform directly and encourage the involvment of students and supervisors.
Members of the scientific board as well as project supervisors involved in the PhD Programme in Translational Medicine will actively promote new seminar programmes and/or summer schools in the areas of Molecular Biology and Molecular Medicine and highly relevant to PhD Programme in Translational Medicine. It is expected that at least several of these new activities will involve one or more of the Colleges of the University of Pavia.

Mini-course title: Cancer Immunology and Immunotherapy. Thursday 12 July 2018, 9-13, obligatory teaching – 1 training credit (cfu) Auletta Malattie Infettive, Fondazione IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo, Pavia.
Presentation: Our bodies are continuously generating cancer cells, which the immune system is constantly destroying. The cells that escape and grow into tumors are now the target of treatments that stoke the immune assault against them — often with dramatic success.
Objectives: The scope of this short course is to make PhD students aware of one of the most exciting and promising treatment approaches in oncology. The course will examine updated knowledge on innate and adaptive immunity to cancer and modern immunotherapeutic modalities, including the use of a combination of check-point inhibitors, unleashing T cells to fight tumors, and the introduction of a genetic sequence encoding a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) protein which primes T cells to hunt down and kill cancer cells that present the antigen corresponding to that receptor. CAR T cells are a novel “hot” approach to cancer immunotherapy.

Teaching activity 2017-2018:
Accreditation of the training activity 1 CFU = 4 hours with a minimum of training activity
mandatory 10 credits
> compulsory courses / activities: 6 lectures of selected external professors from the University of Pavia
among the teachers who are members of the doctoral college and among experts in subjects
relevant for the doctorate (in collaboration with the Harvey course).
Total duration of each lecture: 2 hours and accredited for 0.5 CFU, for a total of 3 CFU
> 2 or 4 seminars or mini-courses held by internal members of the college (or their guests) each
lasting 2-4 hours, accredited for 0.5-1 CFU, for a total of 3 CFU.
> a transversal course, for a total minimum of 4 CFU
An optional formative activity is added which will include:
a) other courses organized by members of the teaching staff
b) other transversal courses with or without CFU organized by the University
c) other courses organized by colleges also available to PhD students
For each student will be prepared a card that summarizes all the activities planned
(chosen research project and teaching activity) in order to monitor the completion of the activity
training for admission to the following year.
