The Master s Programme in Public Health at Lund University is one of the leading MPH programmes in Europe. The programme is offered at the Faculty of Medicine at Lund University [+]
A person’s right to the highest attainable standard of health has no geographical or social bounds. However, poverty and lack of democratic governance impede many people’s access to this right. In order to abolish health inequalities, global partnerships and the effective spread of knowledge are essential. We must therefore educate future public health experts who have a broad, interdisciplinary perspective and a will to participate in this global effort. The programme’s focus is therefore cross-disciplinary with a consistent global perspective, and provides students with evidence-based knowledge, skills and tools necessary for policy-making as well as for field work. Course leaders and guest lecturers have substantial experience in a range of disciplinary and geographical contexts, and originate from countries such as Sweden, Ghana, Greece, Nigeria, India and USA. The diversity and experience of fellow students also contributes to the stimulating learning environment. As one student expressed it, “The class and teaching are a microcosm of the global context we’ll face in work life.”... [-]
This programme connects fundamental research with its applications and integrates genetics, gene technology, cell biology, molecular biology, biotechnology and bioinformatics. [+]
The Master's Programme in Molecular Biology, Molecular Genetics and Biotechnology connects fundamental research with its applications and integrates genetics, gene technology, cell biology, molecular biology, biotechnology and bioinformatics. All these disciplines have a common basis in molecular genetics, which is the discipline that explains how the information in the genes is expressed and how it can give rise to various traits of an organism. Emphasis is also placed on subjects including genetic mechanisms underlying disease, mapping, and diagnostic methods.
Special features of the programme:Courses in genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, biotechnology and medical genetics Courses contain practical training in molecular biology techniques Includes training in the innovation process, entrepreneurship, and the commercialisation of biotechnology ...

This programme offers a highly competitive education in modern microbiology. Molecular biology and genomics have transformed this topic and underlined the fundamental importance of microorganisms in most aspects of biology, from ecology to medicine. The programme spans from the use of microbial model organisms to understand function and evolution of cellular processes to the enormous importance of microbes in biotechnology, the food and pharmaceutical industries, hygiene, environmental biotechnology, etc. Much of this potential is still unexplored and the programme provides tools and knowledge for a career in this exciting area.
