The Master in Molecular Medicine at Uppsala University focuses on the molecular mechanisms that cause diseases, the newest technologies in genomics, epigenetics and proteomics as well as the development of prognostic, diagnostic and therapeutic tools. This is a crucial aspect of the health care of tomorrow, offering personalised and improved translational medicine.

About

The Master Programme in Molecular Medicine at Uppsala University gives you in-depth knowledge about molecular and cellular mechanisms causing diseases, including genetic diseases and cancer, with special emphasis on epigenetic mechanisms. You will learn to independently analyse and interpret research results and data, generated by current methods and technologies. You will also learn techniques for developing novel molecular diagnostics and therapies with applications in both research and industry.

The programme provides an education intertwined with current research and most MSc graduates in Molecular medicine are also continuing with PhD studies or jobs in Life Science industry all over the world.

Career

With an advanced education in molecular medicine you are expected to go on to occupations in research, health-care systems, pharma or biotechnology companies, and governmental organisations.

The strong component of cutting-edge research in the programme gives you an excellent basis for further academic research and PhD studies in the field. You will have gained practical experience of several new molecular technologies and their applications for research in genomics, epigenomics and proteomics, which together with a profound understanding of molecular mechanisms in diseases including cancer, is a requisite for progress in medical research as well as in health care.
