UCBM future challenges on exhibit
The exhibition "Science for Man: our history and future challenges” has been inaugurated on 3 April 2019 to share UCBM forthcoming projects for education, health care and scientific research currently under development. The exhibit, displayed at Trapezio building at Campus Bio-Medico University of Rome, provides a visual and textual narrative on UCBM growth and future projects such as the opening of an Emergency unit at the University Hospital and of a new Outpatient Clinic near Piazza di Spagna, in the center of Rome, in 2020. Among other projects: the renovation of the Oncology and Radiotheraphy Centre, located in Via Longoni, that will be equipped with two cutting-edge linear accelerators; the Hospice “Insieme nella Cura” in cooperation with Alberto Sordi Foundation, and the new Master Degrees in Medecine and Surgery in English and in Food Science, Technology and Chain Management.
