Molecular medicine has been recognized as a major focused area of contemporary medical research and had facilitated a recent breakthrough in disease diagnosis, management, and treatments. For instance, it is now possible to elucidate multiple metabolites and toxin derived from drug based on interomics approach, design highly specific and individualized treatments through genomics screening, bioinformatics, and chemoinformatics assessment and enhance bioavailability of new drugs by making use of nano-delivery.


The IMU MSc in Molecular Medicine is designed for science and medical graduates seeking advanced training in molecular and disease-oriented research. This programme aims to deliver an exceptional curriculum to equip students with skills that meet the highest demands and expectations of scientific rigor. The curriculum is innovative and draws on the expertise of our world-renowned faculty who are also passionate researchers. Core modules present the latest scientific developments in molecular medicine that are delivered through innovative andragogy. Students will appreciate the role of simple and complex molecules in human diseases and the ways in which systems biology, computational biology and chemical genetics have transformed research strategies and methodology in stem cell technology and therapeutics, drug design and development as well as medical and clinical research.
