The three day intensive course arises from the experience of the DREAM Program and wishes to be an occasion to share the criteria of excellence and quality that are at the heart of the DREAM Program, aiming to guarantee the best possible treatment to its patients. It is aimed at young graduates who can learn good laboratory practices and the correct procedures for the management of a laboratory, with a special attention to the molecular biology laboratory.
