Our goal is to give the students all the competences needed for a scientific career and prepare them for independent biomedical research and development. The programme leads to a Master of Medical Science, with a major in Biomedicine and specialisation in either industrial or experimental biomedical research. Most of the teaching takes place in research environments at the Biomedical Research Centre in Lund with parts of the teaching located at Max lab IV/European Spallation Source (ESS). All teachers are active research scientists.
The first semester is devoted to advanced studies, including experimental design, scientific communication and state-of-the-art experimental laboratory work using methodologies that are highly relevant for biomedical research areas. Applied biostatistics and ethics are embedded in the semesters courses. During the second semester, you can individually adapt your studies depending on your areas of interest by selecting elective courses, such as molecular neurobiology, tumour biology, metabolic disease and stem cell biology.
The second year is devoted to preparations for a future profession as a biomedical scientist within academic or life science research. Competences in leadership, application strategies and presentation techniques are combined with either research project management or drug development and clinical trials as the start of a research track with a Masters degree completed at the University or at a life science company in Sweden or abroad.
COMPULSORY COURSES: Experimental Design and Scientific Communication, Biomedical Methods and Experimental Animal Models, Biomedicine the Profession, and either the academic or industrial research track.
ELECTIVES: You may choose among a number of courses at the Faculty of Medicine and the Faculty of Science to create your own specialisation.
