Master's Programme in Experimental Medicine

General

Program Description

The Master’s programme in Experimental Medicine gives you a broad insight into general aspects that affect public health in today’s society. The main focus of the programme is on inflammatory mechanisms and their implication for public health, as many of the common diseases worldwide share an inflammation process as a common denominator. You will gain knowledge and skills in modern experimental medical and laboratory science, as well as in-depth knowledge of cell biology, immunology, human genetics and bioinformatics, and translational medicine.

This MSc programme is research preparatory and the Master’s degree provides you with a platform for research and development, and prepares you for an international career in academia, industry, government and healthcare.

Teaching on the Master’s programme is interactive with an active dialogue between teachers and students. Your teachers are active researchers, who take their current research into the classroom. The programme focuses on the application of theoretical knowledge as well as individual practical skills in order to translate theory into a contextual understanding of experimental medicine and the profile specialisation of your choice. The programme is offered by the School of Medical Sciences and the language of instruction is English.

During the second year of the MSc programme, you select one of three profiles hosted by well-established research environments at the School of Medical Sciences: Cardiovascular Research Centre, Inflammatory Response and Infection Susceptibility Centre (iRiSC) and Nutrition-Gut-Brain Interactions Research Centre (NGBI). In addition to specific course work within your profile, you will conduct a comprehensive individual MSc degree project in a profile-specific topic of your choice.

As a student on the Master’s Programme in Experimental Medicine, you are offered a personal mentoring programme. This is designed to help you progress throughout the programme, in terms of defining current and future goals, prospects, and career planning.
