The Master Programme in Medical Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine from The University of Milan, is committed to form professionals, provided with a strong technical and theoretical background. The expected evolution of their careers will be to develop scientific methodologies and coordinate research projects in the fields of applied biotechnology and translational medicine. 


The Master Programme in Medical Biotechnology and Molecular Medicine from The University of Milan, will provide students with a strong educational background on the genetic and molecular bases of diseases and the pathophysiological mechanisms that occur in humans in pathological states, in order to develop diagnostic and therapeutic strategies based on biotechnology. 

This knowledge will be integrated with a specific formation in the fields of informatics, biophysics, nanotechnology and pharmacology. The Master Programme is organized in common and curricular learning activities focused on neuroscience, oncology, molecular diagnostics and immunobiotechnology. 

As a part of the common course, the students will learn about economic management of a scientific project, with emphasis on the construction of a business plan and cost analysis. 

The Master Programme dedicates a long period of time, almost the entire second year, to laboratory activities in which the student, under the supervision of a tutor, will autonomously develop and apply different experimental approaches in the context of a wider research project. This activity will be finalized to the preparation of the degree programme final exam.


The objective of the course is to provide the scientific community with experts in the fields of medical biotechnology and molecular medicine able to develop new experimental models for the study of human diseases, to develop new diagnostic approaches, to identify new therapeutic molecules, to devise innovative drug delivery systems.

All these possibilities arise from the competences of the Master's graduate who will have a strong medical educational background that will allow her/him to represent a fruitful interface with the clinics, building a bridge between the bench and the bedside. A deep knowledge of the pathogenetic mechanisms of diseases is required in order to apply basic disciplines to the resolution of medical problems.

Employment opportunities: public and private research structures, including Universities, CNR (National Research Council), Istituto Superiore di Sanità (National Institute for health); Hospitals; private pharmaceutical, diagnostics and biotechnological companies; companies supporting scientific research (instruments, biotechnological reagents); companies involved in science communication and publishing.
