Attending the Medical Biotechnologies Master Degree, you will receive solid up-to-date knowledge and an advanced “wet” & “dry” lab expertise in molecular biomedicine applied to the biological and genetic understanding of human diseases. Starting from academic year 2020-21, you will have the option to choose between two didactical curricula: i) Molecular Basis of Disease, covering pathogenesis, advanced diagnosis and design of innovative therapeutic strategies of human diseases; and ii) System Biomedicine, focusing on “big data” analysis in different “-omics” (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, clinical omics…) and their translational implications forbiomedicine. Through the internships offered by both curricula, you will become active part of a lab group involved in international research and have the opportunity to develop a thesis research program. The constant exposure to the English language and the multicultural enviroment will offer you the opportunity to gain excellent skills for biomedical communication at the international level.
