Masterprogram i molekylära tekniker inom livsvetenskaperna
Our understanding of the human body on a molecular level has in recent years advanced dramatically and has lead to the development of a number of new therapies and diagnostic tools for efficacious treatment as well as treatment of diseases for which none previously existed. The mission of the master programme, Molecular tools in life science, is to prepare the students for a professional research career in this area, for example to advance the fundamental understanding of the human body and its diseases on a molecular level or towards using this information to develop novel diagnostic tools and treatments. The programme is a unique collaboration between Karolinska Institute, KTH - Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University, in the environment of Science for Life Laboratory - Stockholm. The students will receive a comprehensive education in life science emphasizing cutting edge methods in bioinformatic analysis of big data combined with state-of-the-art techniques used in modern "high throughput" molecular biology and how to translate biological findings into diagnostic tools and novel treatments.
