An MSc in Molecular Biomedicine enables you to do research within the field of biomedicine and to participate as a fully-fledged member of international research groups. The programme also provides you with the best foundation possible to continue your studies as a PhD student at world-leading universities and laboratories.

The curriculum is focused on experimental work with the molecular biology of human disease and is a joint effort between the two faculties of science and health, both on the same campus in Copenhagen.

During the two-year programme, the main focus will be on your independent laboratory work with a research project that runs for the duration of the programme. In addition, both compulsory and elective courses must be taken. The courses are running in parallel with the research project. Upon completion of the course programme, you will have the necessary background for stringent, scientific analysis of your own and other's experimental work.

    North Campus


    North Campus

    With the Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet) as the next door neighbour, the Faculty of Science and Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences are very well placed in the North Campus. North Campus is an ideal setting for interdisciplinary reseach fields. Massive investments in research infrastructure, including the construction of the Niels Bohr Building and the Maersk Building,  are currently being made to develop the area around the North Campus into Copenhagen Science City. North Campus is very centrally located and transport links are excellent. Many students and teacher  also use their bike, and biking in Copenhagen is easy and convenient.
