The Master's Degree in Experimental Biomedicine is adapted to the EHEA (RD. 1393/2007) and is offered to complete the training of graduates and graduates in subjects related to biomedicine and give access to the Doctoral Program in its new configuration.
In this sense, this Master offers an opportunity for those interested in starting in biomedical research to obtain regulated training in this scientific field. This qualification allows to take advantage of the research experience of the groups of the Faculty of Medicine, CRIB and IDINE in their teaching role at the level of greater specialization.Training objectivesThe general objective of the Master is the training of graduates capable of developing scientific tasks in the field of experimental biomedicine, which prepare them for academic and / or research activity.
Specifically, the proposed teaching program seeks to ensure that students:Demonstrate a systematic understanding of the field of biomedical experimentation.
Master the skills and research methods related to this field.
Demonstrate personal commitment and codes of conduct for the benefit of society.
Be able to carry out a critical analysis, evaluation and synthesis in situations of different degrees of complexity.
Know how to communicate and discuss proposals and conclusions of your research in specialized or dissemination forums.CompetenciesKnow how to apply the knowledge acquired and their ability to solve problems in new or unfamiliar environments within broader contexts related to biomedical research.
Integrate knowledge and face the complexity of making judgments based on information that includes reflections on related social and ethical responsibilities.
Communicate your conclusions (and the ultimate knowledge and reasons that support them) to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way.
Possess learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous.
Integrate the multidisciplinary knowledge acquired in the studies to face research projects in biomedicine in their theoretical, technical and bioethical aspects.
Understand and critically interpret scientific documents and seminars in Spanish and English.
Write written reports of the work done and expose and defend them in public.
Know the scientific method and its phases.
Distinction between data collection and experimentation, as sources of scientific information generation.
Know the stages of the development of a research project.
Manage bibliographic sources of scientific and technical information, and their critical analysis.
Make a report or memory with the structure of scientific publication.
Update biomedical knowledge at all levels of organization of living beings, from the molecular and genetic level to the organic apparatus or system, in relation to normal function and some pathologies.
Know the most common techniques of Molecular Biology, Genetics and Physiology of biological systems.
Know the principles on which the most common techniques in biomedical research are based.
Select the most suitable experimental model for a scientific investigation.
Perform common laboratory techniques in the field of biosanitary sciences.Professional outingsGraduates of the Master will obtain theoretical training, and especially practical training, in biomedical experimentation. This training will be useful for the development of research or support tasks in research centers or in the biopharmaceutical, biotechnology or chemical industry (administration, management and direction, consulting, research, production, analysis). Another professional opportunity is to develop a research career in the field of Biomedicine, either in the university world, in public research organizations, or in the private sphere.
A growth in the demand for Master's degrees with this specialization is foreseeable in the coming years. To the groups of the Faculty of Medicine, CRIB and CHUA should be added at least the groups of the Faculties of Pharmacy in Albacete and Medicine of Ciudad Real, and the Institute for Research on Neurological Disability (IDINE), as well as the graduates of the biosanitary area and the biomedical companies of the Science and Technology Park of Albacete. The growth of university and health research structures that has been taking place in our region makes it necessary to plan the training of graduates with this specialization. Many postgraduates carry out their work at the Complejo Hospitalario Universitario de Albacete (CHUA) and require specific training in laboratory research. In addition, in recent years local and regional companies have been emerging that demand graduates with technical and research training.
The University Master's Degree in Experimental Biomedicine also gives access to the Health Sciences Doctoral Program.Admission profileIt is recommended to be in possession of a Title in which a sufficient technical and scientific basis has been acquired and that has provided basic training in subjects of Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry, Genetics, Physiology, Pharmacology, etc. necessary for optimal monitoring of the Master. This training may have been acquired with different Higher or Undergraduate Qualifications related to Biological Sciences, Health Sciences, Chemical Sciences, Biotechnology and some engineering such as Agricultural or Chemical Engineering.Admission criteriaThe body in charge of the selection is the Academic Committee of the Master. In the selection process, the following criteria will be taken into account:Adequacy of the degree
Profile and adaptation of the previous training to the contents of the master
Other academic or training merits (postgraduate degrees, other degrees, congresses, etc ...)
Languages (preferably English)
Motivation expressed in a letter of interest
Access test or personal interview
