The Master 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 of the health care of tomorrow, offering personalised and improved translational medicine. You will be in an advanced educational environment at the forefront of molecular medicine research, with researchers, clinicians and industry from world-leading laboratories at Uppsala University.
The programme 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.
With an advanced education in molecular medicine you are expected to go on to occupations in research, health-care systems, pharma or biotechnology companies, and governmental organisations.
The strong component of cutting-edge research in the programme gives you an excellent basis for further academic research and PhD studies in the field. You will have gained 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 only need to take one of these language tests:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Take IELTS test
The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
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.
