The field of molecular medicine is often referred to as "tomorrow's medicine". It aims to provide a molecular understanding of how normal cellular processes change, fail or are destroyed by disease. The purpose of the MSc programme is to develop knowledge and skills in cellular and molecular biology. These have applications in both research and practical clinical work, and will contribute to an increased understanding of processes, diagnostics and treatment of diseases.

Programme Components

The MSc is a two-year, full-time programme starting in the autumn semester. There are two main components: a master's thesis worth 60 credits, and theoretical and methodological courses totalling a further 60 credits.

Career prospects

The Master of Science in Molecular Medicine qualifies graduates for a wide range of careers, including:

Research in hospitals, colleges, universities and research institutes
Practical clinical work and technical executive positions in hospital laboratories
Research dissemination (media, publishers, etc.)
Research industry (i.e. aquaculture industry)

Learning outcome

The graduated candidate should be able to:

demonstrate a strong background in molecular medicine (i.e. molecular/cell biology relevant to medical applications) and have practical skills relevant for the field;
describe the organization of the human genome and its functional regulation (i.e. replication, gene expression, genome maintenance, and signal transduction principles);
describe the impact of genes, inheritance and environment on disease, and understand how normal cellular processes change, fail or are destroyed by disease development, in particular for common diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease;
explain principles of molecular diagnostics and advantages/limitations of its applications;
recognize and explain current strategies and state-of-the-art approaches within functional genomics;
collect relevant background information about topics within molecular medicine;
present, evaluate and discuss scientific results in English (orally and in writing);
reflect upon the existence of ethical aspects in an inter-cultural setting, sound experimental approaches and scientific thinking.
discuss and solve relevant cases or problems in international teams/groups
