Aims: The aim of the program is the multidisciplinary training of students in the fields of Biomedicine and Biotechnology using theoretical, methodological and experimental approaches. The future doctors will be able to show a systematic understanding of molecular approaches, as well as become skilled on experimental methods related to molecular technologies for research in health sciences and biotechnology; to conceive, design, and perform research processes with scientific rigor; to conduct original investigations in any of the research lines of the program; to make critical analysis, assessments and synthesis of novel and complex ideas in the field.


The interest in biomolecular disciplines has shifted from basic research to laboratory applications in health and biotechnological companies, in a process with scientific and social implications. On the one hand, the future professionals in Molecular Sciences must know the molecular mechanisms that govern the function of organisms  with biotechnological interest, or of the human body in health and disease, in order to adapt its specific terminology to these professional areas facilitating the exchange of knowledge about diagnosis, prognosis, experimental and therapeutic components of biotechnological and healthcare processes. On the other hand, the professionals on life sciences should know in depth the methodological tools of their field and its analytical potential with an interdisciplinary perspective that is imposed for the future of these areas. This doctoral program aims to train specialists to face this highly relevant dialogue.
