Both basic and applied biomedical research have an increasing demand for modern interdisciplinary approaches. The Master program in Molecular Biotechnology at the University of Torino meets these challenges in an innovative way by combining the fields of Molecular Biology, Molecular Imaging and Drug Discovery, and Bioinformatics. The interdisciplinary character of the program allows students to specialize according to their interests and prepares them for a scientific career in one of the many branches of Life Sciences.
The main focus of this program is on practical experience, which the students gain during several internships. Students spend most of their formative curriculum attending the experimental work in a research laboratory that may lead to scientific publications. Lectures and seminars offered by the University of Torino are part of the formative track.
The Master program in Molecular Biotechnology is aimed at graduate students (from such fields as biotechnology, biology, chemistry, pharmacy) with a strong background in cell biology, molecular biology, genetics, inorganic and organic chemistry, and biochemistry. This Master is opened to students of the BioHealth Computing EM program (EU Master) coming from worldwide.
