International stem cells and genome editing Master

(In memoriam of Paolo Bianco)


u-stem is a one-year Master course held in English at Sapienza University of Rome, in collaboration with Fondazione Pasteur Cenci Bolognetti, for graduated students coming from Medical, Pharmaceutical and Biological Schools. The objective of u-stem is to provide students upfront knowledge on the biological properties of adult, embryonic and induced stem cells, along with the available genome engineering tools, including delivery vectors and DNA editing systems. Furthermore u-stem courses will present case studies of biomedical applications of stem cells, as well as of the related patenting and ethical issues. Beyond theoretical knowledge, u-stem students will get access to an international internship offer, set up by the u-stem scientific committee which includes Italian and international stem cells and genome editing experts. The international internship aims at introducing Master students into PhD courses, as well as into the stem cells- and genome editing-related job opportunities, in Italy and abroad.
