Master in Biomedicine students must endeavour to become health sector professionals capable of conducting and interpreting scientific projects aimed at improving, diagnosing and treating human diseases. To this end, students will apply themselves to developing the necessary skills and knowledge for the acquisition and robust analysis of biomedical observations and the planning of original research projects in the field of human health.
Through their choice of focus and option, students pursuing the Master in Biomedicine programme will study in depth a specific area of expertise, such as: molecular and cellular psychopathology, cancerology, neuroscience, nutrition, toxicology or clinical research. In the Master’s programme, the emphasis is placed on practical training, through the completion of a research project in a health science laboratory and by means of a work placement in a professional environment, possibly abroad.
The objective of the School of Biomedical Sciences is to produce not only experts in the major areas of biomedical knowledge, but also medical research professionals who will help shape the diagnostic and therapeutic developments of the future.
On successful completion of this programme, each student is able to :
- formulate hypotheses and identify the implications;
- then deduce a structured experimental strategy.
- understand and describe point by point experiment protocols accurately and precisely, so that they may be reproduced by another scientist;
- plan the entire monitoring procedure (positive and negative checks).
- develop analogical and deductive reasonings;
- identify correlation and causality links;
- identify and correct errors of logic.
- utilise the dispersion of continuous variables as a source of information.
- argue the pertinence of the experimental strategies selected and the conclusions put forward;
- compare these data with those of similar studies published in scientific literature;
- identify any differences, suggest possible causes and plan any necessary additional experiments.
- outline in detail the experimental approach used and the results obtained, in order to discuss them with the other members of the team.
- recognise their errors and correct them;
- quote their sources and avoid plagiarism;
- understand and apply the rules relating to experimentation.
