Aims: The general aim of the programme is the multidisciplinary training of students in the fields of Biomedicine and Biotechnology, through theoretical, methodological and research training. The doctors of this programme should be able to develop, in the future, quality research tasks and international projection, as well as an outstanding professional performance in the companies of this field. The future doctors in “Biomedicine and Biotechnology” will be able to show a systematic understanding of molecular approaches, as well as the mastering of skills and research methods related Molecular Technologies for Research in Health Sciences and Biotechnology; to conceive, to design, to put into practice and to adopt a substantial research process with academic rigour; to prepare an original research in some of the research lines in Biomedicine and Biotechnology, which may contribute to extend the frontiers of knowledge and that deserves it a referenced publication at international and national level; the ability to make a critic analysis, an assessment, a synthesis of new and complex ideas, as well as being able to communicate to the academic and scientific community and to society in general about their knowledge in Biomedicine and Biotechnology.

Description: The interest of bio-molecular disciplines has shifted from the specific research of its fields to the laboratory applications of the health area and to the biotechnological companies, in a process of scientific and social implications. On the one hand, the future professionals of Molecular Sciences should master the foundations of organism behaviour of biotechnological interest or of the human organism in health and disease states, and to adapt its specific terminology to the professional area, for facilitating the exchange of knowledge on diagnosis, prognosis, experimental and therapeutic components of biotechnological and healthcare processes. On the other hand, the professionals of molecular life sciences should know deeply the methodological tools of their field and its analytical potential, in an interdisciplinary perspective that is imposed on the future of these work areas. This doctoral programme aims to train specialists who deal rigorously with this dialogue and research of such importance.
