The Master Course in Biomedical Research aims to create conditions for
the development of differentiated and high scientific merit training
that prepares students to carry out Research activities in Biomedicine.
The main scientific areas in the scope of this Master course include:
- Vision Sciences
- Infection and Immunity
- Cardiovascular Sciences
The course comprises:
- A curricular year with training modules in core areas and specialization areas
- Laboratory Rotations interspersed with Advanced Training
- Research leading to the masters thesis
The Master course is intended for highly motivated and qualified students that successfully concluded their first training cycle in areas adequate for the prosecution of a differentiated technical or scientific career that involves a strong Biomedical Research component. These areas include a first training cycle in fields such as Health Sciences, Biology, Biochemistry, Pharmacy, Biotechnology Engineering or related fields.
This Master course is coordinated by Henrique Girão and is tightly articulated with the Doctoral Programme in Health Sciences of the Faculty of Medicine.
Equal opportunity statement: The Master Course in Biomedical Research practices an affirmative action and equal opportunity policy. We value diversity and we have a strong policy against discrimination at work of any kind. Recruitment of students should reflect the diversity of the national and international community where the School is integrated.
