The master's programme in Bioinformatics for Health Sciences is designed to provide professionals and researchers with skills and abilities geared towards the development of new computational strategies and IT systems for use in biomedical research.
One of the key features of this programme is the large percentage of optional subjects it offers, allowing students to train in a wide range of bioinformatics disciplines. At the same time, it has a clear professional orientation as witnessed by the inclusion of compulsory subjects on the design, management and exploitation of scientific research.
Who is it for?
The programme is aimed at two types of candidates: holders of degrees in biological and health sciences (biology, medicine, biochemistry, biotechnology, pharmacy, etc.) and holders of engineering degrees or degrees in basic scientific disciplines (chemistry, physics, or mathematics).
Candidates must be interested in the development and application of computational tools for use in the field of biomedicine.
