The new Master's degree "Innovations in Biotechnology applied to regenerative medicine" is an interfaculty course offered by Università Cattolica between the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery and the Faculty of Mathematical, Physical, and Natural Sciences. The program is entirely taught in English.
The Master's program will take place both at Centro di Ricerca Eugenia Menni (CREM) of Fondazione Poliambulanza in Brescia, where lectures and activities in biomedical laboratories will be conducted, and at the Faculty of Mathematical, Physical, and Natural Sciences of Università Cattolica’s Brescia campus, where enrolled students will have access to advanced materials physics laboratories.
The educational program aims to deepen knowledge of advanced biotechnologies in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. It provides a multidisciplinary scientific education and combines theoretical knowledge with practical skills enriched with cutting-edge scientific and technological updates. The main objective is to train professionals capable of conducting research in the field of regenerative medicine, integrating aspects from different disciplines and cross-cutting knowledge to develop new technological applications.
Graduates with a Master's degree in "Innovations in Biotechnology applied to regenerative medicine" become highly specialized biotechnologists who are internationally competitive and able to operate in many areas including: research and service laboratories in public or private institutions (universities, research organisations); biotech and pharmaceutical industries, specifically in research and development, regulation, and quality control activities; national and international regulatory and certification bodies; companies that carry out and support technology transfer activities; institutions involved in activities complementary to biotechnology (publishing and scientific communication, service providers, grant writing and scientific support agencies).
In addition, after passing the State examination, the graduate can register with the Professional Order of Biologists (Senior List) and thus will be able to access career opportunities in the health sector. The graduate in Innovations in Biotechnology applied to Regenerative Medicine may also apply for a Ph.D. and other post-graduate specialty schools with access reserved to ‘non-medics’ as per DI n. 716/2016, as well as to similar post-graduate courses at foreign universities.
The link will be available once admissions are open for the 2024/2025 academic year.
