The Master Programme in Medical Nuclide Techniques at Uppsala University is highly interdisciplinary and brings together leading scientists and clinicians from Uppsala University to create a unique and stimulating educational environment.


At the Master Programme in Medical Nuclide Techniques at Uppsala University you will focus on methods and technologies for producing, assessing and measuring ionising radiation. You will study physical and biological aspects on ionising radiation, including sources of radiation, measurements and estimates of radiation effects and risks.

The choice of labelling method is critical for functional molecules in radionuclide-based imaging and therapy and you will study various techniques for labelling and purification of radionuclides for preclinical applications. Further studies involve function and application of detectors and imaging modalities in research and for clinical practice. 


There is an increasing demand for knowledge in nuclide techniques for physicians, pharmacists, physicists, biologists and chemists. With an advanced education in medical nuclide techniques you are expected to go onto a career in research, healthcare systems, pharma or biotechnology companies, and governmental organisations. 

The interdisciplinary training, with focus on the development of radionuclide labelled compounds, and knowledge about new methods and applications are highly important for progress of molecular imaging in research as well as in healthcare.
