Programme

The Master’s Degree in Molecular Biomedicine offers 5 areas of specialization covering different human pathologies: Cancer, Immune and Inflammatory Diseases, NeurologicalDiseases, Cardiovascular Diseases and Rare Diseases.

The Master’s Degree is organised on a modular basis. The student must complete 60 ECTS credits over one academic year, of which 30 credits are theoretical and practical modules (5 modules of 6 ECTS credits each) and the other 30 ECTS credits consists of a laboratory‐ based experimental module focused on developing a Research Project. This project will take place in one of the research groups attached to the postgraduate program and under tutor supervision. At the end of the Master’s Degree the student must submit a written Master’s Thesis for presentation and defence before a board of examiners.
