Objectives

torna su

The Master Program in Medical Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine is committed to form professionals, provided with a strong technical and theoretical background in order to develop scientific methodologies and coordinate research projects in the fields of applied biotechnology and translational medicine. The Master program will provide students with a strong educational background on the genetic and molecular bases of diseases and the pathophysiological mechanisms that take place in the sick human organism, in order to develop diagnostic and therapeutic strategies based on biotechnology. This knowledge will be integrated with a specific formation in the fields of informatics, biophysics, nanotechnology and pharmacology.

The Master Program is organized in common and curricular learning with insights into neuroscience, oncology, molecular diagnostics and immunobiotechnology. The students will also learn, as part of the course, about economic management of a scientific project, with emphasis on the construction of the business plan and cost analysis. The second year of the course is almost entirely dedicated to research activities, finalized to generate useful data for the preparation of the final exam.

Career prospects

torna su

The graduate in the Master Program in Medical Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine will be able to coordinate research projects in the field of biotechnology and molecular medicine and to collaborate with physicians in the development of novel and innovative diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.

The graduate, therefore, will find employment as:

  • Researcher in the fields of medical biotechnology and molecular medicine
  • Medical Science Liaison (MSL)
  • Clinical Monitor
  • Market access manager
  • Medical and scientific communication advisor

Experience of study abroad as part of the training program

torna su

During the Master, students can participate to study and internship experiences abroad within the Erasmus + Programme, which represents an excellent opportunity to improve their abilities and knowledge in an international context. The University of Milan has agreements with Universities located in different european areas, which include Belgium and Netherland.
