All the info

The master’s degree Course in Medical Biotechnologies aims to prepare graduates with a solid background in the field of molecular biology and pathogenetic mechanisms involved in human diseases, with particular interest in the pathophysiological, diagnostic and regenerative fields as well as precision medicine. The course provides for knowledge based on interdisciplinary bases to be applied to the various fields of biotechnology aimed at the medical practice, with particular regard to the sectors of research, diagnostics, therapeutic and regenerative medicine. The educational objectives of the Medical Biotechnologies Course are aimed at providing students with a preparation that allows them to:

  • hold a good basic knowledge of the biological systems from both a molecular and a cellular point of view, in particular in relation to human diseases.
  • possess the theoretical and experimental knowledge of the multidisciplinary techniques characterizing biotechnological protocols to produce biomedical goods and services through the use of classical and new generation biological systems.
  • develop adequate skills for the communication and management of scientific information at the international level.
  • provide knowledge relating to the industrialization process and regulatory aspects.
  • be able to work in a team with a proper autonomy and to integrate promptly into the workplace.

The Master's Degree Course in Medical Biotechnologies will be delivered completely in English considering that it represents the official language of the scientific community. This Course aims to attract students of various nationalities, allowing them to integrate knowledge and experience from various cultural fields in a multidisciplinary and multiethnic environment. The course includes multiple training areas, namely pathophysiology and advanced molecular diagnostics of human pathologies and the approach to understanding the biomedicine of complex systems analyzed with next generation -omics technologies. A further training area introduced to align the Course to the new field of precision medicine is represented by regenerative medicine, which also includes the study of bioengineering of human tissues and cells.

For free access master’s degrees there will be the possibility to enroll between January and April 2025, the second teaching period.

Internationalization in a friendly environment of students from many continents and diverse Italian universities, offering numerous options for International Mobility Programs (Erasmus, Free Mover);
Choice between two didactical curricula reflecting your learning priorities and providing personalized “wet & dry lab” experience;
A plus when applying for International PhD Programs and job positions;
Constant exposure to the English language offering the opportunity to gain excellent skills for biomedical communication at the international level.
