Course Objectives

The master degree programme in Biology Applied to Medical Research is designed to offer graduates a sound theoretical understanding of the biological processes that underpin the physiology of organs and systems, and their pathological dysfunctions and modulation on a pharmacological basis, particularly in human beings.

It also offers training in the application of the key concepts, bio-health considerations and aspects relating to the relationship between humans and the environment, providing graduates with the tools required to apply this knowledge through experience of modern laboratory practice and the completion of an experimental thesis.

In particular, the master's degree programme sets out to provide students with the tools required to ensure continuous modernisation in the field of biomedical research through the use of flexible teaching methods based on the provision of monographic courses.

The master's degree programme is specifically targeted at training graduates to adopt a critical, constructive approach to the most advanced knowledge in human biology research.

Career and Employment

Graduates in Biology Applied to Medical Research can enter roles in the laboratories of public and private bodies engaged in biomedical research at both a European and extra-European level, including universities, hospitals, research centres, local bodies, pharmaceutical firms.

They can also engage in the development of new biomedical and bio-health technologies in industries in the field, and assume positions of responsibility in the organisation of work in public and private analysis laboratories.
