Molecular Medicine (Master's Programme)

What will you learn?

Molecular medicine is a rapidly evolving field of life science that combines sophisticated techniques and concepts from various disciplines such as cell- and molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, biotechnology, and bioinformatics to study disease at the molecular level. By investigating the genes, proteins, and other molecules that are involved in the development and progression of disease, researchers can develop new diagnostic tools and therapies that target specific disease-causing molecules. In this way molecular medicine has the potential to revolutionize healthcare by providing more precise and effective treatments for a wide range of common diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular- and neurological diseases.

The MSc in Molecular Medicine is an international program with varied teaching methods and modern learning facilities. Teaching is provided by experts from the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences and the Faculty of Natural Sciences at NTNU. The language of instruction is English. Active learning strategies are being used to engage students in their learning through problem-based learning (PBL), team-based learning (TBL), colloquiums, student presentations, laboratory exercises and project work.

The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences is tightly integrated with St. Olav’s Hospital. Thus, students get to work in modern and high-tech laboratory environments side by side with researchers both from NTNU and St. Olav’s Hospital.
