Programme in Molecular techniques in Life Science

The programme is a collaboration between Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University, in the environment of Science for Life Laboratory, Stockholm. Students will receive a comprehensive education in life science, emphasising cutting-edge methods in bioinformatic analysis of big data, combined with state-of-the-art techniques used in modern "high throughput" molecular biology and how to translate biological findings into diagnostic tools and novel treatments.

Master's Programme in Molecular techniques in Life Science

This two-year master's programme is delivered by a team of teachers who are internationally recognised researchers in their respective disciplines, to ensure a relevant curriculum at the research forefront. The programme consists of courses aiming to give a solid education in a combination of molecular biology, biotechnology and medicine, with a focus on high-throughput biology and analysis of big data for translation of biological findings from lab bench to patient bedside. The education also aims to develop skills and abilities essential to the professional career - including oral and written presentation, team working skills, and how to make ethical and societal considerations about life science related issues, all of which are important for the ability to lead projects in academia and industry.
