Molecular Techniques in Life Science at KTH

Our understanding of the human body at a molecular level has advanced dramatically in recent years, which has led to the development of new therapies and diagnostic tools for the effective treatment of diseases. Students on the Molecular Techniques in Life Science programme will receive a comprehensive education in life science, emphasising cutting-edge methods in bioinformatics analysis of big data, including learning how to programme, combined with state-of-the-art techniques used in modern “high throughput” molecular biology. Students will also learn how to translate biological findings into diagnostic tools and novel treatments.

The programme is delivered by a team of teachers who are internationally recognised researchers in their respective disciplines, so as to ensure a relevant curriculum at the research forefront. The courses give a solid education in a combination of molecular biology, biotechnology and medicine, with a focus on high-throughput biology and the analysis of big data, including programming, for the translation of biological findings from lab bench to patient bedside. The programme also develops skills and abilities essential to the professional career – including oral and written presentation, teamwork, and how to make ethical and societal considerations about life science related issues, all of which are important for the ability to lead projects in academia and industry.

Degree project

The degree project is carried out during the last semester of the programme, and involves the student working on a research topic related to the subject in the curriculum. The project is carried out in a research group at Karolinska Institute, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University, at Science for Life Laboratory, or in any other internationally recognised university or research institute or industry.

This is a two year programme (120 ECTS credits) given in English. Graduates are awarded the degree of Master of Science.

Topics covered

Bioinformatics, programming, molecular life science methods, translational medicine, genomics.
