[Italy] One-year Master?s Degree Program Biotechnology in Healhcare

[Italy] One-year Master’s Degree Program Biotechnology in Healhcare

For the calendar year 2011, the EuroMediterranean Institute for Science and Technology (Istituto EuroMediterraneo di Scienza e Tecnologia, hereinafter referred to as “IEMEST”) will be organizing a one-year Master’s degree program in “BIOTECHNOLOGY IN HEALTHCARE”. The program, with the administrative headquarters located in Via Emerico Amari 123, Palermo, will be organized in association with the Department of Experimental Biomedicine and Clinical Neurosciences of the University of Palermo, the Department of Biochemistry, Medical Chemistry and Molecular Biology of the University of Catania, the Regional Authority for the Education (“ERSU”) of Palermo and the “Accademia Nazionale della Politica”.
This statute regulates the institutional and management related aspects of the program. Enrolment and attendance to the program entail full acceptance of these regulations.
The initiative is motivated by the lack of advanced formative courses in this sector, with the growing demand of qualified personnel due to the increasing use of sophisticated equipment in studying chemical, biochemical, biological, morphologic and functional characteristics of normal and pathological cells. By instituting the Master’s program, IEMEST aims to contribute to meeting this social, scientific and educational demand.
The main goal of the course is to train highly specialized graduates in the application of biotechnology in healthcare, through learning the latest laboratory techniques for studying normal and pathological cells from a chemical, biological, genetical, biomolecular, biochemical, morphological and pathological points of view. In addition, the course is aimed to provide legal and bioethical tuition based on the current Italian and European legislation, as well as on the contents of any relevant bills under discussion in their respective Parliaments.
The Master’s program is reserved for candidates with a degree in chemistry, biology, medicine, biomedicine, biotechnology, pharmacy, pharmaceutical chemistry or other related disciplines, hoping to gain theoretical and practical knowledge applicable in public or private medical and research laboratories.
The program will have a prevalently practical approach; lectures will be followed by laboratory workshops in small groups, putting the acquired theoretical knowledge into practice. The students will learn the principal biotechnological techniques in the scientific sectors described below. Additionally, interim exams about the contents of the course are carried out, and students will be required to pass a final exam in order to graduate.
The Master’s program offers the chance to gain experience in the application of the different methodologies on the curriculum, and to acquire the cultural background that motivates the choice of one or more techniques, based on individual requirements as well as diagnostic or scientific issues.
The graduates’ future career opportunities include private and public research or healthcare structures, including pharmaceutical companies, in the euromediterranean area. In particular, the goal of the program is to enable graduates to become competitive elements in the employment market in hospitals, University research laboratories, private research entitities, CNR (National Research Council), pharmaceutical industry, as well as biotechnology companies.
Administrative office, language, duration
The course is organized by IEMEST, whose administrative headquarters are located in Via Emerico Amari 123, Palermo. The academic program will be carried out by experienced lecturers, with specific expertise in areas of interest to the program, employed in both public and/or private structures, some of them associated with IEMEST.
