The course offers a solid grounding in chemistry, biology and computing; an excellent basis in the fields of biochemistry, molecular biology, physiology, pathology, applied human pharmacology; knowledge of the foundations of physiopathology and diagnostics; and a solid interdisciplinary understanding of the biotechnological methodologies used in the different fields of biotechnologies with medical uses. A particular focus is placed on the research, diagnostic, therapeutic, reproductive, forensic sectors, in compliance with regulations and taking into account ethical and bioethical issues.
The degree program prepare a professional figure with a good basic knowledge in molecular biomedical and technical practices, and skills in modern communication techniques, which allow to collaborate in the planning and implementation of biotechnological applications to man.
The programme is designed to prepare students capable to apply biotechnology protocols in the medical field and to collaborate on development programs and surveillance of biotechnologies applied to man considering also ethical, economic, and administrative aspects.
Medical Biotechnologies graduates can pursue careers in:
Universities and other public and private research bodies
National Health Service organisations, hospitals, specialist public and private laboratories
Pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies
Research and development centres for biotechnological diagnostic products in the health sector
Biotechnological service centres
Bodies in charge of drafting health and patent regulations regarding the utilisation of biotechnological products for the protection of human health
