Welcome to the Department of Biology and Biotechnology

Welcome to the new web site of the Department of Biology and Biotechnology "Lazzaro Spallanzani" (DBB).

We are on 

The Department of Biology and Biotechnology (DBB) was created in 2012 with the aim to bring together scientists from 5 different former Departments, whose expertise encompasses fundamental area of life science including Biochemistry, Cytology, Genetics, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Pharmacology, Physiology, and Zoology. More than 100 people (scientists, postdocs, students, technicians, and administrators) are working at DBB to give raise and support an intensive scientific and academic activity. Several research teams operate at DBB, that share a common philosophy based on a multidisciplinary approach to research in field of biologiy, with contributions from structural biology, cellular biochemistry , functional genomics and system biology. Translation to clinic, as well as to medical and biotechnological applications is constantly sought as a major goal of many research projects developed at DBB. The DBB offers and organizes two Bachelor Courses, in Biological Sciences and in Biotechnology, that enroll more than 400 students every year, and four different Master Courses: Industrial Biotechnology, Experimental and Applied Biology and Neurobiology, which are held in Italian, and Molecular Biology and Genetics, for which English is the official language. The DBB is also actively involved in the organization of four different three-years PhD schools, and two Specialized Master Programs.
