Started in the academic year 2008/2009. The minimum number of credits for the degree is 120 (2 years).
Course only starts with 10 or more confirmed entries as definite by the Executive Council of the FCT NOVA.
The Master in Molecular Genetics and Biomedicine aim to be an advanced training in Molecular Genetics, Cell and Molecular Biology and Microbiology relevant to the understanding of phenomena and advance in medicine.
The importance of Biomedical Sciences for the development of medicine is now widely recognized, and good professionals in this area, covered by this course, are highly demanded for multidisciplinary teams. Course holds on the knowledge acquired in Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics and Microbiology at the 1st cycle.
Advanced training in Molecular Genetics and Biomedicine will allow access to more advanced scientific-technological development corresponding to the 3rd cycle (PhD). It also can provide access to education and research and development areas (R&D) in national or European service industries including:
Portuguese students: 1063,47 €/year
Foreign students: 7000 €/year 60% reduction for CPLP (Community of Portuese Language Countries) students

The Department of Life Sciences (Departamento de Ciências da Vida - DCV) is aims at teaching and research in fundamental Biology relevant for application in Biotechnology and Biomedicine.
DCV is responsibel for BSc's Courses - Licenciatura em Biologia Celular e Molecular (1st Cycle), MSc's - Mestrado em Genética molecular e Biomedicina (2nd Cycle) and PhD Program in Biology and PhD Program in Biotechnology (Co-coordination with DQ/FCT/UNL), while collaborating in several other Courses at FCT and UNL.
DCV is organised in a single Scientific Section grouping the scientific ares of Microbiology, Genetics and Cell Biology. Research at DCV is integrated into International and National collaborative efforts in the areas of Microbiology, Human and Molecular Genetics, Biotechnology, Nanobiotechnology and Cell Biology.More info
