USI AND IBSA FOUNDATION
As part of a broad project of collaboration and support undertaken with USI (University of Lugano), the IBSA Foundation has activated a Scholarship program. The agreement signed with Usi has a duration of 10 years and provides for the award of 10 new scholarships a year for students studying Biomedicine, in addition to their renewal if the awarded students are in compliance with the exams.
Within the collaboration, the IBSA Foundation also supports the PhD in Cancer Biology and Oncology and the courses of the Center of Advanced Studies on Entrepreneurship in Biomedicine (CASE BioMed), which complete the medical and scientific training proposed by the Faculty of Biomedical Sciences through training programs continues (BioBusiness and MedTech Business). These programs offer young companies active in the biotechnology and medical technologies field the knowledge and skills needed to develop, finance and market innovations in the biomedical field.
