Programme overview

Molecular Medicine


The MSc Molecular Medicine program is a two-year research master’s program of 120 EC points, representing a total study load of 3,360 hours.

At the start of the program, during the course Introduction Weeks, you will get to know the program organizers and course directors, and familiarize yourself with the basic and translational research laboratories within our institute. Several MSc faculty will hold short presentations, to give you a broader view of possible lines of investigation, and enable you to make an informed choice for the research projects ahead.

The theory courses of year 1 are designed to help students acquire the basic knowledge and capacities that they need to start the research projects they will be conducting as they proceed through the program. Most importantly, the courses aim to develop a sense of urgency to stay informed of new developments, and to acquire a life-long learning attitude. Without exception, theory courses are led by scientific MSc faculty.

The laboratory visits and the larger research projects, which together take up almost 18 months of the total two-year study program, are usually performed within the many basic and/or translational research laboratories that participate in the MSc program. When working and learning in the lab, students will be continuously guided and supported by the scientific group leader who acts as their direct supervisor.
