Medicine

Officially known as the Italian Republic, the country is found in southern Europe. The official language is Italian and the cultural rich capital is Rome. Many of the world's oldest universities are located in Italy, in particular the University of Bologna (founded in 1088). There are three Superior Graduate Schools with "university status", three institutes with the status of Doctoral Colleges, which function at graduate and post-graduate level.

MSc Biomedical Sciences - Neurobiology: Molecular Neurosciences

University of Amsterdam
Campus Full time 2 years

A basic understanding of molecular principles holds the key towards unique treatment paradigms for psychiatric and neurological diseases such as schizophrenia and Parkinson’s. The Master’s track in Molecular Neurosciences provides a training platform for students who have the ambition to play a major role in looking for solutions for the diseases of today and tomorrow.

Top MScs in Medicine in Italy. The function of the brain is the result of an extremely complex integration of signaling units: neurons. In order to understand the role of neurons in health and disease, it is essential to understand the fundamental mechanisms underlying neuronal function. With the progress made in genetics in recent years, it has become a great ambition to understand what all these genes are doing in neuronal systems. A basic understanding of molecular principles holds the key towards unique treatment paradigms for psychiatric and neurological diseases such as schizophrenia and Parkinson’s. The Master’s track in Molecular Neurosciences provides a training platform for students who have the ambition to play a major role in looking for solutions for the diseases of today and tomorrow. Goals The goals of the track are to: provide an essential theoretical framework in molecular neurosciences; prepare the student to be a critical researcher; prepare the student to work independently in a molecular neuroscience lab; prepare the student to report on his/her results in written and spoken form; train the student in the research process: research question> design experiment> interpret results> define following research question(s); train the student in applying for research funding. Programme outline Courses The track starts with a mandatory course of three months covering several topics: Development and specification of neuronal systems; Signaling pathways in neuronal systems; Stem-cell fate and cortical genesis. Each topic includes one week of full-time practical work. These practical assignments include the use of state of the art techniques such as in-utero and ex-vivo gene transfer in the brain and FACS. At the end of the course, students will be given a theoretical assignment to integrate theory and practice. It is possible to combine this Master's programme with a different major or additional courses (at the UvA or other universities). Internships & thesis After the core course, an initial internship is planned for about 40 ECTS. At the end of the year, a student symposium is held where the data of the internships will be presented and discussed with colleagues and supervisors. In the second year, a second internship will be planned with the goal to go abroad. Alongside this internship, a second optional course can be taken in order to obtain a formal certificate in animal work. The second year will be finalised by writing a research thesis (literature review , 12 ECTS). [-]

MSc in Cardiovascular Science

University of Göttingen
Campus Full time 4 semesters

The masters program "Cardiovascular Science" is a consecutive, full-time study program in English, which has the intention to train international students in all aspects of cardiovascular science. [+]

The masters program "Cardiovascular Science" is a consecutive, full-time study program in English, which has the intention to train international students in all aspects of cardiovascular science. This will be achieved by its modular structure which offers students with a background in natural sciences a broad education, not only in the relevant basics but also in modern clinical aspects which are essential for understanding translational research questions. A key feature of this program lies in its high proportion of individual practical training, allowing students to gain experimental experiences and insights in different research questions. After finishing their Masters thesis, the graduates will be highly qualified for their future careers in the field of cardiovascular sciences in academia and industry, but also in familiar occupational fields. Programme name: Carciovascular Science (M.Sc.) Degree: Master of Science (M.Sc.) Standard period or study: 4 semesters Starting semester: winter semester Admission: limited admission (application to the Faculty) Application: October of each year Application deadline: May 31th for winter term Language of the programme: English [-]
