About the master

Discovery and change are such constants in molecular biology and biomedicine that an undergraduate degree is no longer enough to pursue professional development in these fields.

Our master's program in Molecular Biology and Biomedicine responds to these training needs, being especially indicated for those students who want to do a doctoral thesis.

The Masters actively involves most of the scientists at the UPV/EHU and the UC, and their associated institutes, who are currently doing cutting edge research in molecular biology and on a wide variety of the molecular aspects of biomedicine.

This is a distinctly research-oriented masters.

The degree has been approved and accredited by ANECA and UNIBASQ, respectively, the Spanish and Basque Government agencies responsible for quality assurance in higher education, and it has been successfully offered each year since 2007.
