The University of Turku is the right choice and environment to study your Master’s Degree in biomedicine! We have several internationally distinguished research concentrations including thematic collaborations in Biofuture, Bioimaging, Drug Development and Diagnostics. Bioscience success stories are born from strong research in the fields of cancer research, molecular biosciences, and cardiovascular and metabolic diseases research. For instance, our host defence and autoimmune disease research is internationally at the top of the field, as is the development of diagnostics and imaging methods.

The exceptionally extensive campus area in Turku, called the Turku Health Campus, is a significant centre of operations in health and biosciences. The campus forms the largest multi-professional education cluster in medicine and health sciences in Finland.
