About

The Molecular Techniques in Life Science programme is a unique collaboration between Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University, in the environment of Science for Life Laboratory, Stockholm. 

Overview

The students will receive a comprehensive education in life science emphasising cutting-edge methods in bioinformatic analysis of big data, combined with state-of-the-art techniques used in modern "high throughput" molecular biology and how to translate biological findings into diagnostic tools and novel treatments.

This two-year master's programme in Molecular Techniques in Life Science at Karolinska Institutet is delivered by a team of teachers who are internationally recognised researchers in their respective disciplines to ensure a relevant curriculum at the research forefront. 

Career opportunities

  • The combination of molecular biology, biotechnology and medicine provides an excellent profile for a professional research career in an academic setting or in the biotechnological and pharmaceutical industries. 
  • The life science industries and academic institutions working in these areas are active and the life science sector is expanding worldwide, which gives students an excellent job market and wide range of possible employments.

Programme Structure

  • The first year contains advanced level courses in genetics, biophysical chemistry, and translational medicine, as well as the foundations of bioinformatics and comparative genomics. There is also a project course. All three universities offer courses during the first year, with an emphasis on Karolinska Institutet (autumn semester) and Stockholm University (spring semester).
  • The second year offers courses in applied gene technology, proteomics, drug design, and bioinformatics analysis of large-scale data. There is also a project course. Most courses during the fall semester are offered by KTH Royal Institute of Technology. During the spring semester, the individual degree project is performed.
