Educational Activities: The Chiron Educational Program

Medical School

The Institute hosts the following courses of the Medical School under the auspices of the University of Torino:
(a) Histology
(b) Biochemistry
(c) Medical Oncology
* (Student exam sessions)

PhD Program

The Institute offers four different PhD programs.
(a) PhD in Molecular Medicine (Cell Sciences and Technology): a four-year course (under the auspices of the University of Torino) open to young graduates in Medicine, Biological Sciences, Biotechnology, Chemistry, and Pharmacology. It is aimed at training for basic and translational research in biomedical sciences.

(b) PhD in Complex Systems and Post Genomic Biology: a three-year course (under the auspices of the University of Torino) aimed at training graduates in the fields at the interface of medicine, life sciences, mathematics and physics.

(c) PhD Program in Biomedical Sciences and Oncology: a four-year course (under the auspices of the University of Torino) open to graduates in Medicine, and Biological Sciences and mainly aimed at training clinical researchers.

(d) PhD program in Oncological Sciences: a three-year course (under the auspices of the Catholic University of Milano-Roma) aimed at exceptionally talented graduate students to be trained in cutting-edge oncological research at the highest level.
Graduate students are provided with an individual tailored guidance program and required to rotate through a number of laboratories to learn different research techniques collaborating with world-class scientists. Career counselors help students to investigate job types, develop curriculum vitae and resumes, and refine interview skills. After completing the PhD program students are encouraged to participate in internship opportunities in both basic or clinical research, technology transfer, science policy, and management.
All programs are open to Italian and foreign students. Fellowships are provided on a competitive basis Post-doctoral Programs

IRCC International Cancer Research Training Program. This scheme employs scientists of all nationalities to improve scientific exchange between the Institute’s researchers and colleagues who have matured qualifying experience in foreign institutions. The research field is at in the interface between molecular biology and medicine, referring in particular to today’s problems in molecular oncology.

The Marie Curie European Training Center The European Commission has recognized IRCC as a qualified center for training young researchers in the experimental medical science field. Within the framework of the program, IRCC employs in rotation graduate students from member states for periods varying from six months to two years in the research laboratories.

Master in Molecular Oncology

The Institute offers a two-year Master in Molecular Oncology aimed at providing clinical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiologists, radiotherapists, and pathologists with up-to-date knowledge of cancer biology and genetics as well as of novel diagnostic and therapeutic (e.g. precision medicine) approaches that arose from latest molecular and genomic information.


The Candiolo Cancer Institute is a private non-profit institution founded and supported by the Fondazione Piemontese per la Ricerca sul Cancro-Onlus (FPRC) and operated by the Fondazione del Piemonte per l’Oncologia (FPO: co-founded by FPRC and the Regione Piemonte).
