Would you like to discover how a molecular oncology lab is organized? What if you could talk with scientists directly involved in the study of molecular mechanisms underlying cancer formation and development?

Take part to one of the two Open Days devoted to high school students, teachers and curious citizens!


Open Days

An all-round experience to discover how an international research centre works, which are the more promising areas of cancer research and which are the cutting-edge technologies used by scientists. Since the great success of the last year edition, after the tour in IFOM labs, students will participate in a round table with scientists to discuss about different types of career in science, the daily life of a researcher, and goals and achievements of cancer research. Moreover, also for this year, one Open Day will be entirely dedicated to international students and to Italian students interested into attending the lab visits in English.
