Graduation Day 20 July 2023


Today 20 July at 9.30 in the historic Aula Nesci of the Anatomy and Histology plexus of the Department of Biomedicine, Neuroscience and advanced diagnostics, the thesis discussion of one of the first graduating students of the new master's degree course entirely in English called "Neuoscience". The course is part of the LM-6 Biology category, and therefore gives access to the Order of Biologists, but many doctors request it to complete their preparation and be interested in basic scientific research as well as in the department.

The students of the course are both Italian and foreign, among the foreigners there are biologists and doctors from different parts of the world, from the United States to Germany, from Ethiopia to Russia, from Iran to Ireland.
The thesis of the student Martina Bavetta presents experiments conducted at the University of Resovia in Poland, during an Erasmus study period lasting one academic year. Prof. Tabrkiewicz spoke in attendance, coming from Poland to attend the graduation exam. This opportunity will allow the University of Palermo to start the feasibility study to ask for the double degree.

First Graduation in Neuroscience


About three years ago, Professor Valentina di Felice, who is the chairperson of this course, together with myself and many other professors who are now here, have started meeting and brainstorming about a novel international master's degree program in neuroscience. This MS has been structured to provide the scientific basis for a hybrid neuroscientist. A neuroscientist with a solid neurobiological foundation but ready to challenge him/herself with neuroprosthetics, neuropharmacology and neurobiotechnology. Today we were very honored to award our first student, Dr. Talya Saleem, with  the Master degree in Neuroscience. She discussed a thesis on the intriguing topic of human brain behavior within immersive technologies such as Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality.
