Master of Science in Molecular Medicine

Rapid developments in medical technology and new kinds of conceptual thinking within the field of biology have increased the need for laboratory specialisation. NTNU offers an International Master of Science (MSc) programme in Molecular Medicine tailored to meet this demand.

The purpose of the MSc programme is to develop knowledge and skills in cellular and molecular biology. These have applications in both research and practical clinical work, and will contribute to an increased understanding of processes, diagnostics and treatment of diseases.

CEMIR offers master's thesis projects for the MSc in Molecular Medicine. Researchers affiliated with CEMIR also contribute with lectures and seminars.

Medical student research programme

The Medical Student Research Programme (MSRP) is a national research education and grant scheme for medical students who wish to carry out research.

The Medical Student's Research Programme is offered to around 10% of the medical students. These students are interested in medical research and are willing and motivated to do research on top of their regular studies. Their medical study syllabus is prolonged by one year, from 6 to 7 years. MSRP gives 120 credits, and includes both coursework and a thesis. CEMIR offers supervision for MSRP students.
