Masters program in Molecular Life Sciences

Molecular life sciences aims to understand the structure, function and regulation of biological systems at molecular, cell and organism levels. The subject is broad and many different fields interact. Molecular life sciences is characterised by very rapidly growing need to gather knowledge, extensive technological advances, and the establishment of new subdisciplines. This means that our understanding of living organisms is rapidly increasing, and that we in this way can obtain powerful new tools for applications in biotechnology and biopharmacology. A Master’s degree in Molecular Life Sciences opens a broad spectrum of career opportunities both within and outside of the academic sphere. Important parts of industry and society require deep knowledge within molecular life sciences, from biomedical research and pharmaceuticals development to the effect of the environment on biological systems, quality assurance of foodstuffs, and nutritional science. This programme is also, naturally, highly appropriate for students who plan to carry out research in the exciting field of molecular life sciences.
