Master's in Biomedical Sciences


Overview

The Master's in Biomedical Sciences provides advanced training in the medical field based on solid scientific foundations combined with a great deal of practical work.

The course is based on acquiring advanced knowledge in the fields of biochemistry, molecular biology, toxicology and pharmacology.

There are 4 specialisations to choose from, all of which are developed and supported by the research carried out in our research laboratories and are among the most hopeful biomedical science research sectors.



Course Structure

During the first year of the Master's programme, students take very specialised courses in the field of biomedical sciences, such as Structural and Functional Proteomics, Gene Therapy, and Clinical Immunology.

They can then move towards more specific disciplines, such as toxicology, neuroscience, oncology, and molecular imaging.

The Master thesis is spread over both years of the programme, starting at the beginning of the second term in the first year and finishing at the end of the first term in the second year.

During these two years, students will also take specialised courses on the handling of laboratory animals. These courses in animal testing are followed by an assessment leading to a certificate required for all laboratory work involving animals.

At the end of the second year, students have the opportunity to carry out a long-term placement abroad or in the private sector that will enable them to embark on a PhD or get a job in industry.


Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course, students will be able to:

  • learn the causes of diseases
  • develop the tools necessary for diagnosis
  • highlight new drug targets
  • study the effectiveness of different medications through experimental models of diseases.



After...

Graduating with the Master's in Biomedical Sciences can lead to studing for a Specialised Master's in the biomedical field in Europe. Master students may also apply for the programme Certificate of Teaching for Upper Secondary Education.
