Biomedical Science

Students obtain master’s degrees for many reasons. Perhaps they wish for more specialized knowledge in a certain field as well as more job responsibilities and a higher salary. In addition, they may want a doctorate degree and must first earn a master’s degree. A master’s degree is a way for a person to show he has additional education and training in a field.

What is a Master in Biomedicine? Biomedicine is the study of biological processes such as molecular and cellular foundations and evolution. The master’s degree is primarily aimed toward students who plan to get doctoral degrees. Coursework is both in the class and in the lab. Students can tailor elective courses toward their own interests. For example, elective class topics often include tumor biology, metabolic disease and neurobiology. Students also complete a significant research project.

The benefits of a biomedicine degree are plenty. Students enhance their high-level technology skills, can study internationally and often complete projects in line with their passions.

Universities all over the globe offer biomedicine programs. To this end, students should research specific schools and programs to get an idea of approximate costs, or contact the schools. Students should always research exact program requirements to ensure the best match possible.

Students who get biomedicine master’s degrees often move immediately into doctoral programs. Even if they do not, they often have many opportunities. Biomedicine graduates work in medical research and medical writing, with patents, and in clinical trials. Many work as principal investigators in research. They are also employed by academic institutions as well as businesses and hospitals.

Biomedicine students can take classes part time or full time. Although much hands-on work is required, some programs may offer online learning for the classroom components. To find the school for you, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

MSc in Biomedical Sciences - Infection and Immunity

The master track “Infection and Immunity” has been designed to integrate the advanced knowledge in two interlinked disciplines. Immunology is the science that investigates how complex multicellular organisms (mostly mammals) defend themselves against infectious diseases. Immunologists investigate biological systems at all levels of integration: molecular, (sub)cellular, tissue, organism, and society. The experimental tools address the molecular, structural and cell biological level, incorporating state of the art techniques such as microarrays, deep sequencing, live imaging and multicolor fluorescent flow cytometry.Medical Microbiology studies the pathogenesis, epidemiology, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of pathogens and infections from the molecular to the global health level. Though the immune system protects against infection, microbes employ a variety of strategies to escape immune responses. Another important topic that will be addressed is the emergence of antimicrobial resistance.... [-]
