Master in Experimental and Applied Biology - The Programme

In the frame of the Master in Experimental and Applied Biology, the student will have the opportunity to choose between the environmental area or the biomedical-bioanalytical one. The activity related to the preparation of the thesis will be an important phase of the formation pathway and will require a considerable number of credits.
In the first case, a deeper knowledge related to the biodiversity of ecosystems, via a dynamic-evolutive approach, will be privileged. This curriculum, essentially based on botanical, zoological and ecological disciplines will be integrated by specialistic knowledge of the more up-to-date molecular techniques applied to the study of the environment and to the statistical analysis of biological data. If the cultural and professional orientation of the student is addressed towards a biomedical-bioanalytical path, the disciplines in the cellular and molecular area will be the favored choice.
In the biomedical area, the student will deepen his/her knowledge of cell and molecular biology accompanied by courses on pharmacology, general pathology and immunology, with the aim to obtain an active integration with the biomedical, clinical and pharmaceutical research fields.
In both areas, the students will be associated to a research group and actively participate in one of the group’s research projects carrying out a scientific investigation under the supervision of a department member. The experimental work must result into a Dissertation that will represent an essential component of the Course programme.

Moreover, students interested mainly in the biological analysis laboratory work, in the wider sense (clinical analyses in the hospital, environmental analyses indoor and outdoor as well as production-related) will be given the opportunity to obtain the theoretical-practical knowledge to carry out biochemical, genetic, microbiological, cytological, parasitological and toxicological analyses together with the current regulations in the laboratory, environment and medical field. The students will then be able to further enlarge their knowledge on the bioanalytical techniques during the preparation of their thesis and in the course of possible stages carried out in labs outside the University to favor the approaching of the labor market.

The Master degree, depending on graduates’cultural and professional orientation, will lead to work in the verification, running and conservation of the environment; in the biomedical field; in diagnostic laboratories; in teaching of Biology at various levels.
