DUniBo is an exchange partnership between Drexel University and the University of Bologna, Italy that aims to facilitate student-centered collaborations between the two universities. The initiative was developed by longtime scientific collaborators Dr. Olimpia Meucci (Drexel University) and Dr. Renato Brandimarti (University of Bologna), and has grown to include approximately 20 faculty mentors, program directors and administrators as well as many students (including the traveling graduate students and several other chaperones.) Exchange students have previously focused on areas with high potential of interactions between the two universities, including translational research and drug discovery in areas including experimental oncology, neuroscience, and cellular biology. However, the program aims to expand into additional academic areas in line with the interests of exchange students and participating research groups at both institutions, including engineering, business & law, and media, arts, and design. Prospective exchange students are highly encouraged to tailor their DUniBo experience to their own academic interests.
