Plan de Estudios


The Master in Molecular Biomedicine offers 5 specific areas of specialization, oriented to different pathologies: Cancer, Immune and Inflammatory Diseases, Neurological Diseases, Cardiovascular Diseases and Rare Diseases.

The Master has a modular organization. The student must take 60 ECTS throughout an academic year, of which 30 ECTS will be theoretical-practical modules (5 modules of 6 ECTS) and the other 30 ECTS will consist of a single experimental module that will be carried out in a laboratory and will be focused on the development of a Research Project. This project will be carried out in one of the research groups attached to the postgraduate program and under the supervision of a tutor. At the end of the Master, the student will have to prepare a written work (Master's Thesis) and proceed to its presentation and defense.
