Ph.D. Program


Bioengineering of the Human Neuromusculoskeletal System

This is a specific educational MOY labelled Program shared by the following two doctorates of the Centre academic members:
  • the Doctorate in Bioengineering offered by a consortium of four Italian state Universities (Bologna, Rome “Sapienza”, Rome “Foro Italico, and Naples “Federico II”, with Bologna as administrative seat), coordinated by ———-
  • the Doctorate in Biomechanics (MEGA Doctorate School) offered by the University of Lyon 1, coordinated by ———

This research doctorate Program, located in the field of Bioengineering, pursues the objective of educating candidates to contribute to the advancement, systematization, and dissemination of knowledge regarding the structure and the functions of the human neuromusculoskeletal system at every scale level (in the Virtual Physiological Human framework) and all phenomena implicating human movement, to the design and validation of advanced analytical tools and technologies, and to their translation into professions. These objectives are pursued through a rich international network of multi-domain scientists at a French university (Lyon 1) and an Italian university consortium (Bologna, Rome “Sapienza”, Rome “Foro Italico”, Naples “Federico II”) and with the partnership of non-academic institutions. The international nature of the Program (based on the cotutelle model) and associated student mobility across national borders makes graduates more attractive to an increasingly global labour market. The structured academic training, as well as focusing on the human neuromusculoskeletal system, includes:

  1. core research skills;
  2. personal and professional skills and competences;
  3. material/human resources and financial management;
  4. development of knowledge and technology transfer, and of an entrepreneurial mindset.

The activity of the candidates is monitored and assessed by international scientists and according to international standards.
