The Master’s Programme in Molecular Medicine 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 to offer personalised and improved translational medicine. You will study at the forefront of molecular medicine research, with researchers, clinicians and industry from world-leading laboratories.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The Master’s Programme in Molecular Medicine 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 a research-preparatory education intertwined with current research and most graduates in molecular medicine are also continuing with PhD studies or jobs in the Life Science industry all over the world.
During the programme you can expect to:
- independently analyse and interpret research results and data, generated by current methods and technologies.
- learn techniques for developing novel molecular diagnostics and therapies.
- develop an profound understanding of molecular mechanisms in diseases, including cancer.
You will gain 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.
You aquired a broad theoretical base in bio-/chemistry, cell- and molecular biology as well as in genetics during your Bachelor’s studies in biology or other Life Science area and now you want to expand your skillset in the intersection between understanding diseases and curing them. You have practical experience working in a lab, can select reasonable methods for analysis and stay safe while doing so.
You can critically analyse and reflect on problems and are creative and innovative enough to come up with your own ideas. You enjoy problem solving and your natural curiosity drives you to seek a deeper understanding, not just learn the facts.
A PhD education is a distinct possibility in your future so you would value an educational experience that gets you in close contact with current research and prominent researchers in Uppsala and all across the world.
The programme leads to a Master of Medical Science (120 credits) with Molecular Medicine as the main field of study.
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university. The main field of study must be in biomedicine, medicine, pharmacy, engineering, biology, or a similar field of study that gives relevant knowledge in chemistry, biochemistry, cell and molecular biology and molecular genetics.
Also required is previous experience of laboratory work.
All applicants need to verify English language proficiency that corresponds to English studies at upper secondary (high school) level in Sweden (“English 6”). This can be done in a number of ways, including through an internationally recognised test such as TOEFL or IELTS, or through previous upper secondary (high school) or university studies.
The minimum test scores are:
- IELTS: an overall mark of 6.5 and no section below 5.5
- TOEFL: Paper-based: Score of 4.5 (scale 1–6) in written test and a total score of 575. Internet-based: Score of 20 (scale 0–30) in written test and a total score of 90
- Cambridge: CAE, CPE
Selection: Students are selected based on:
- a total appraisal of quantity and quality of previous university studies with emphasis on grades in relevant fields;
- a statement of purpose; and
- a summary in English (1-2 pages) of a degree project.
If you are not a citizen of a European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA) country, or Switzerland, you are required to pay application and tuition fees. Fees cover application and tuition only and do not cover accommodation, academic literature or the general cost of living. Read more about fees.
