Specialized Master of Science in Experimental Biomedical Research

The Master of Science in Experimental Biomedical Research (Sp-MScEBR) provides opportunities for a broad learning experience in the area of biomedicine. It emphasizes research training and acquisition of practical skills that will enhance your capacity to take on a future employment and/or develop a career in research.

The program includes common core teaching and a choice among three options:

  • Neurosciences
    • Functioning of neural circuits and systems in health and disease in both humans and relevant animal models
    • State-of-the-art approaches for diagnosing and repairing central nervous system dysfunctions
  • Infection, inflammation and cancer
    • Topics at the forefront of medical research: inflammation in cancer and metastasis, immune response to cancer, development of antibiotic resistance in infectious diseases
    • Emphasis on translational aspects and clinical relevance
  • Cardiovascular and Metabolic Health
    • Mechanisms of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases in an integrative way
    • Integration among different organs or systems e.g., cardiovascular, renal, metabolic and endocrine systems
