The Master of Medical Sciences programs from United Arab Emirates University are designed to cater to the needs and aspirations of individual students, the expressed needs of the relevant institutions in the UAE, and the current strengths in different disciplines in the CMHS.


Currently the structure of the M. Med. Sc. Medical Sciences curriculum from United Arab Emirates University is organized into three tracks: “Microbiology & Immunology”, “Pharmacology and Toxicology” and “Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (BMB)”. 

1- Biochemistry & Molecular Biology The Biochemistry and Molecular Biology tack is a multi-disciplinary program which provides students with a foundation in Biochemistry and Molecular and Cellular Biology as well as intensive state-of-the-art laboratory research training. Research areas in the Biochemistry Department focus on the Biochemical, Molecular and Cellular basis of human diseases including Cancer Biology, Diabetes, and Neurodegenerative disorders, in addition to areas in Gene Regulation, Bioinformatics, Proteomics, Epigenetic, Signal Transduction, Oxidative Stress, Mitochondrial Dysfunction, and Immunology and Biochemical Toxicology. 

2- Microbiology & Immunology The Microbiology and Immunology track provides students with core knowledge at the respective levels in basic immunology, the pathogenesis of autoimmune and infectious diseases, the molecular details of host-pathogen interactions, the molecular biology and molecular epidemiology of selected pathogens, and the genetic manipulation of pathogens. 

3- Pharmacology & Toxicology The Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics offers a multidisciplinary program designed to prepare highly qualified individuals to be successful scientists in academic and industrial biomedical research. The pharmacology and toxicology faculty members carry out research in cancer pharmacology, neuropharmacology, cardiovascular pharmacology, drug metabolism, toxicology, proteomics, molecular pharmacology, receptors and signal transduction, and drug design.
