Program description

Molecular Biomedicine

In the last decade decisive advances have been made in understanding life, in its molecular dimension, and consequently we have evolved in a vertiginous form from a disease perspective, in its diagnosis and therapeutics. Molecular Biomedicine is at the interphase between Medicine/Health and Biology and involves knowhow from Molecular Biology, Genomics, Proteomics, Human health and Pathology.

The 2nd cycle in Molecular Biomedicine (MBMM), will capacitate the student to develop conceptual, practical and methodological tools to apply to molecular biomedicine. The principal objective is to provide the student with a multidisciplinary training to be at the forefront of biomedical research and clinical diagnosis. He/she will thus obtain a broad vision of biomedicine and will acquire skills to transfer the knowledge and scientific knowhow to academia, industry or research or diagnostic laboratories. The intent is to prepare students for future professional environments.

Admission requirements

  1. Licenciatura level degree, or legal equivalent in Biomedical Sciences, Medicine, Cellular Biology, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Biochemistry, Biology, Biomedicine and related areas. Candidates with a Licenciatura level degree in Mathematics, Physics, Computer Engineering and related areas can also apply.
  2. Foreign higher education degree in Biomedical Sciences, Medicine, Cellular Biology, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Biochemistry, Biology, Biomedicine and related areas, or in, Mathematics, Physics, Computer Engineering and related areas awarded on completion of a 1st cycle study programs organised in accordance with the principles of the Bologna Process by a State adhering to this process.
