Our Alumni

ICGEB’s training programmes represent an exciting opportunity to interact with people all over the world in state-of-the-art scientific environments and in all the top scientific institutes. Youth, essential to nurturing a brighter and more equitable future, constitutes the backbone of the ICGEB’s training programmes that have been operating for over three decades across the world.

Several hundred new ICGEB fellows yearly constitute an ICGEB Alumni body of over 3500 individuals from more than 60 countries around the globe, with an estimated 750 PhD awardees among them. We aim to consolidate the Alumni Association, through the Alumni Registry (available in a password-restricted Alumni area upon request to the members), which includes updated information on almost 1800 Alumni. An Alumni Newsletter was launched in November 2022.

The ICGEB Alumni Secretariat is continuing work on strengthening this networking community, to develop training, cultural initiatives and expertise involving ICGEB Alumni. Dedicated ICGEB Alumni groups are active on the major social networks, encouraging exchanges, interaction and Alumni initiatives.

We campaign for ICGEB Alumni for Girls in STEM and strive to strengthen this networking community, to develop training, cultural initiatives, and expertise involving ICGEB graduates. Through the support and ideas of its members and the proactive collaboration of the ICGEB, the Alumni will thrive and continue to advance biotechnology activities in academic institutes, companies, and industries where it is most needed.

Join the ICGEB Alumni Groups on major social networks, and add the hashtag #ICGEBalumni when you post! We publish testimonials from our Fellows across the globe predominantly on these platforms. To keep updated on our Seminars, topics and speaker information please sign up for our Newsletter.

“My PhD training at ICGEB exposed me to a dynamic and collaborative scientific environment, where I learned from respected researchers with various backgrounds and expertise, putting me in the position to grow as a scientist. In addition to my training, I had the pleasure of joining the ICGEB outreach team where I was able to promote the subject of science to the broader community, and also a great occasion to build connections with people and share my passion for science. Being part of the ICGEB community requires hard work, passion and commitment, but it’s absolutely worth it.”

2014 Arturo Falaschi PhD fellowship recipient Consuelo Torrini, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, USA

“ICGEB had an enormous impact on my career. It provided an international environment rich in experimental skills and ideas, leadership training and science diplomacy. Today I have a network of collaborations that have been developed through the ICGEB, following the rules of respect and excellence learned in Trieste.”
