Top 9 Master Degrees in Molecular Biology 2019/2020

A master’s degree usually takes one to three years to complete and is earned after a student finishes his or her undergraduate education. These degrees explore the undergraduate subject areas in greater detail, and many students are required to submit a thesis or research project in order to graduate.

What is a Master in Molecular Medicine? This degree program educates students about the basic aspects of bacteriology, molecular biology, immunology, oncology, and genetics. A strong emphasis is placed on individual research, and students will be required to spend large amounts of time in the lab. Some programs may even require students to publish scientific material in order to graduate. Topics such as diagnostic techniques, quality control, and the clinical applications of molecular medicine are covered in great detail.

Many benefits can arise from furthering one’s education. From a practical perspective, the majority of students who earn a master’s degree will be able to command higher salaries than their non-educated peers. They often also have an easier time finding employment.

The cost of earning a master’s degree varies from country to country and school to school. Each school is also allowed to set its own prices and rates. For more extensive financial details, students should contact their prospective schools directly.

The majority of molecular medicine students secure positions in the medical research, biotechnology, and academic fields after graduation. Those who work in the research field perform experiments and analyze results in order to find cures for microbiological illnesses. Biotechnology workers are commonly hired by both the research and pharmaceutical industries. A minority of students choose to work as instructors in academic environments around the world. These workers may even publish books and journals on their findings and opinions.

There are a variety of ways to earn this particular degree. Online learning options may be more appealing to students who prefer to work at their own pace. For additional information, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Why Biomolecular Sciences?Modern society faces an ever-increasing variety of challenges in the Life Sciences. Improved medical care has resulted in an ageing population, creating a greater need to understand and treat age-related disorders such as various forms of cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. Bacteria under high selective pressure are acquiring broad antibiotic resistance, so we are constantly forced to develop new and innovative antibacterial drugs. And the potential risks inherent in industrialized food production are only just becoming apparent. It is more and more obvious that a thorough understanding of the molecular basis of the underlying cellular processes is essentia... [-]

The 21st century started as the century of molecular life sciences. Ever since the 1990s when scientists greatly improved our insights into the molecular basis of life processes, the life sciences have developed at a tremendous rate. Various breakthroughs, including the mapping of the human genome, are leading to the rapid development of inter-relationships between formerly autonomous scientific disciplines such as genetics, medicine, pharmacology, biology, and environmental science.

This creates new prospects for the academic and business worlds. Investments are huge: all over the world, universities, research institutes, and businesses are launching new research initiatives, teaching programs and business-related activities.... [-]

Have you ever wondered where the word gut feeling comes from, or why stress induces abdominal discomfort? If so, this Master's programme may be of interest to you.

Nutritional Molecular Medicine and Bioinformatics is a two-year international Master's programme using problem-based learning (PBL) and designed to offer students scientific knowledge and competence to understand the complex bidirectional signalling between the gut and the brain. It focuses on in-depth knowledge on how diet and nutrition, the intestinal microbes, the intestine and the brain interact, as well as: i) how this is related to aberrant function of the gut and the brain, ii) how this relates to clinical practice, and iii) how this can be elucidated by state-of-the-art clinical and experimental research. The programme also provides you with an understanding of: i) how cellular processes relate to organ functions, ii) how the (patho)physiology of gut-brain interactions relates to nutritional, microbiological, gastroenterological and neurobiological aspects (with a human and clinical perspective), and iii) how bioinformatics can be an important tool to reach that understanding. This knowledge is essential for the development of new strategies to diagnose, prevent and treat the often debilitating disorders related to gut and brain function.... [-]
