This 2-Year Master’s Degree in Biotechnology and Medical Biology bridges theoretical knowledge to hands-on training in biological research, with an emphasis on biological processes underpinning human physiology and pathology.
Our Master Graduates will be exposed to an intensive training in the research laboratories of the San Raffaele Scientific Institute (or in linked institutions in Italy and abroad) culminating in the discussion of a written dissertation. Thus, our Master Graduates will be leading through a short yet complete research project; they will personally know what and why to look for, how to design a research project, how to generate and interpret data, and how to communicate their results to other researchers, through both oral and written presentations in English. Our teaching methodology encourages students to take active responsibility for their own learning; “student-centered” and “self-directed” learning are the keywords for this approach. Thus, top-down learning is complemented by a bottom-up learning aiming at solving issues arising during the research project.
