This exciting degree programme enables students to expand and enhance their:
- understanding of the molecular pathways that lead to the proliferation, differentiation, and death of cells,
- knowledge of the physiology of cells and organs,
- insights into the pathophysiology of diseases,
- practical laboratory skills.
A master degree in molecular medicine equips students with the knowledge and skills necessary to undertake scientific projects in the field of molecular medicine and to review and critically discuss published data related to this research area.

The Master in Molecular Medicine is studied over three semesters.
In the first two semesters, students focus mainly on the module entitled Specific Aspects of Molecular Medicine, which is taught via a mix of lectures, seminars, and practical work. The lectures and seminars concentrate on various aspects of haematology and oncology, regenerative medicine, infectious diseases and immune reactions, neurobiology, and human genetics. For the practical element, students select four research courses from a choice of 40, each of which lasts for four weeks.
The first year of the programme includes a lecture and seminar on clinical trials. Students will also look at aspects of management, such as project management and European patent law, and take soft skills courses, including good laboratory practice, bioethics, and the interpretation of scientific results.
An examination is held at the end of the first year. Depending on the grade achieved in this examination, highly-motivated and well-qualified students can move directly onto the PhD programme to undertake fast-track doctoral studies.
In the third semester, students concentrate on writing their dissertation. The Master in Molecular Medicine concludes with an oral examination (viva voce) at the end of the final semester.
