    The Master Degree in Functional Genomics is an international course characterized by subjects in molecular biology, genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics applied to biomolecular medicine, diagnostic and pharmaceutics. A peculiarity of the course is an international program that allows to obtain also the Double Degree from the Universities of Paris 7 and Paris 5.

    Trieste hosts numerous scientific institutions which closely cooperate with the University. This creates a stimulating environment which offers numerous opportunities for the preparation of your experimental M.Sc. thesis and for the development of your professional career after graduation

    The first year of the M.Sc. Course is dedicated mainly to course lectures, while the second year is dedicated to the preparation of an experimental M.Sc. thesis. Beside the traditional courses (lectures and activities in the laboratory) the programme includes seminars given by experts from various fields and by visiting professors of leading research topics in olecular and cell biology, genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics.
    Subjects studied during the Course: proteomics, oncogenomics, pharmacogenomics, application of functional genomics to diagnostics, genome and transcriptome analyses of organisms of economic interest, innovation and technology transfer.

    Thanks to an agreement signed with the Universities Paris Diderot - Paris 7 and Paris Descartes - Paris 5, a selected number of students will follow the second year of the M.Sc. Course in Paris and will obtain the Double Diploma of Master Degree in Functional Genomics and Master de Sciences, Santé et Applications - mention «Génétique», a European level degree course with lessons given in English.
    In addition to the Double Diploma, several bilateral agreements with foreign Universities allow the students to spend part of their studies and the thesis abroad.
