goals

The main objective is to provide advanced training, specialized and multidisciplinary, academic and scientific, aimed at their insertion in the research career in Microbiology or Parasitology, or in the professional field in R & D & I, especially in the environmental aspects, biotechnology, health, quality control and / or research management and evaluation. For this, the Master's Degree offers an integrated and highly updated teaching on the ecophysiology, genetics and molecular biology of different microorganisms and parasites, on the experimental design and the methodology used in its study, including the most modern genomic and proteomic technologies.

This University Master's Degree has a research, development and innovation orientation and allows us to delve into different microbiological and parasitological facets such as the exploitation of microbial systems, the pathogenesis and control of microorganisms and parasites, and quality assurance in Microbiology.
