Brief description of the degree course
Characteristics and objectives
The goal of this degree course is to prepare skilled graduates with an in-depth biomedical culture concerning the relationships between structure and function of biomolecules and biosystems operating at the cellular level, and tissue of the human body in health and disease, and in-depth knowledge of biotechnology, acquired on the basis of sound practical experience in the laboratory. Subject to the educational aims of Class LM-9, the acquired knowledge allows specialized graduates to assist physicians in the diagnostic and therapeutic tasks involving the manipulation of cells, genes, and other biosystems requiring applicants to learn special skills in experimental biotechnology (e.g. Diagnosis and gene therapy; assisted reproduction; therapy through the use of genetically engineered cells; rational design and development of new medicines based on models of molecular targets known or derived from pharmacogenomic knowledge; preparation of nano-biotechnological tools for advanced diagnostics imaging and drug delivery; modulation of the immune response; diagnostics based on innovative processes of science and medical laboratory techniques; immunotherapy to targeted cells); organize and coordinate laboratory activities for advanced research or for diagnostic examinations requiring the use of biotechnological methods and the manipulation of cells or biotechnological materials; organize and coordinate the experimental protocols of clinical research involving the use of materials or biotechnology techniques; design and perform with autonomy research in biotechnology applied to medicine; lead and coordinate, also in governance, development programs and surveillance of biotechnology applied to human beings, taking into account the ethical, technical, environmental and economic implications.

Occupational opportunities
Biotechnology physicians will be able to head research laboratories in a predominantly technological and pharmacological environment and coordinate, as well as in terms of management and administration, program development and the monitoring of biotechnology applied on human beings with emphasis on the development of pharmaceutical products and vaccines, taking into account the ethical, technical, and legal implications and environmental protection.
