The purpose of the Master of Science in Pharmaceutical Biotechnologies (two years, 120 CFU) is to endow students with a sound scientific knowledge for modern pharmaceutical research and health biotechnologies.
The organization and the needs of the research in the pharmaceutical field have changed dramatically in recent years. Modern research in both academic and industrial setting is intensely devoted to the study and development of biopharmaceuticals, including the development of biologics and monoclonal antibodies of new conception. Currently, the pharmaceutical scientist requires a thorough education and expertise in molecular biology, genetics, recombinant DNA techniques, and bioinformatics, with a solid background in chemistry, pharmacology and advanced pharmaceutical technology. The professionals working in pharmaceutical R&D and production must possess a sound interdisciplinary knowledge, including the specific technical and regulatory issues dedicated to the research, development, and monitoring of innovative drugs and biosimilars....

The goal of this degree course is to prepare skilled graduates with an in-depth biomedical culture concerning the relationships between structure and function of biomolecules and biosystems operating at the cellular level, and tissue of the human body in health and disease, and in-depth knowledge of biotechnology, acquired on the basis of sound practical experience in the laboratory. [+]
This study course is for students who wish to become specialized graduates with an advanced biomedical knowledge concerning the links between the structure and the purpose of biomolecules and bio-systems operating at cellular and tissue level of the human body, in both physiological and pathological conditions. The wide knowledge of the techniques is based on a solid practical activity in laboratories during the internship.
Subject to the educational aims of Class LM-9, the acquired knowledge allows specialized graduates to assist physicians in the diagnostic and therapeutic tasks involving the manipulation of cells, genes, and other biosystems requiring applicants to learn special skills in experimental biotechnology (e.g. Diagnosis and gene therapy; therapy through the use of genetically engineered cells; rational design and development of new medicines based on models of molecular targets known or derived from pharmacogenomic knowledge; preparation of nano-biotechnological tools for advanced diagnostics imaging and drug delivery; modulation of the immune response; diagnostics based on innovative processes of science and medical laboratory techniques; immunotherapy to targeted cells); organize and coordinate laboratory activities for advanced research or for diagnostic examinations requiring the use of biotechnological methods and the manipulation of cells or biotechnological materials; organize and coordinate the experimental protocols of clinical research involving the use of materials or biotechnology techniques; design and perform with autonomy research in biotechnology applied to medicine; lead and coordinate, also in governance, development programs and surveillance of biotechnology applied to human beings, taking into account the ethical, technical, environmental and economic implications....
