Master in Translational Medicine-MSc

Welcome from the coordinator

The Master in Translational Medicine-MSc from the University of Barcelona offers the opportunity to gain an excellent training both in academia and research.

  • Academic. The Master provides comprehensive and updated knowledge of the basics, clinical and epidemiological entities associated with major human pathogenesis, examined from a cross-sectional view.
  • Research. It provides comprehensive access to knowledge and skills necessary to develop research projects related to translational medicine.

The master can be completed in 1 or 2 years, depending on the needs of the students. Total number of credits of the Master is 60 Credits (46,5 €/credit for Spanish citizens - 65,87€/credit for foreigners) and the official language of the Master is English. An important part of the Master is dedicated to practical training in research.

In recent years, there is a growing demand for highly qualified scientific personnel to meet the needs at public research centers as well as in the pharmaceutical industry. This increase is due to the noticeable appeal for translational research demonstrated by public/governamental institutions and the progressive interest of domestic industry by biotechnology-related activities. It is plausible that the demand for professionals skilled in translational research will grow in the coming years, both in academia and enterprise. In stark contrast to this growing demand, there are currently no undergraduate studies in our country that are professionals in this type of research. This means that graduates in health sciences in our country are at disadvantage compared to similar professionals coming from the European Community, better trained in this field. This is important to a labour market increasingly globalized, especially in the field of biomedical research. This MA aims to fill this gap in the training of highly qualified professionals in translational research.

The mission for this Master is to train a new generation of researches that are highly competitive to carry out their professional work in a field that is growing exponentially at present. For this purpose we have gathered in the current Master an outstanding set of scientists, physicians and staff from biomedical enterprises aimed to deliver state-of-the-art up-dated information in cutting-edge biomedical technologies and translational medicine.

What is Translational Medicine

The recent advances in high-throughput technologies are revolutionizing the biomedical world. Nonetheless, basic scientists are discovering new causes of diseases, mechanisms of pathogenesis and novel drugs that are difficult to be translated into the biomedical clinical practice. This occurs in part due to the lack of a common ground of interaction between biologists, biotechnologists, geneticists, pharmacologists, physicians and biomedical companies.

We have organised this Master to provide the needed body of information to link basic knowledge and clinical needs. The information provided in this Master will fulfill the requirements needed to understand translational medicine. It certainly gathers a set of professors with experience in translational medicine, along with basic scientists and physicians devoted to clinical care.

The purpose of this Master in Translational Medicine is to provide the basis for a comprehensive understanding of all new cutting-edge technologies and discoveries in biological sciences and be able to understand their translational or clinical application in biomedicine.

* Master linked to the doctoral program “Medicine”, with Quality Mention (ANECA).
