MSc Molecular Medicine (accredited)
The Importance of Molecular Medicine
Can you make a positive difference in the field of Molecular Medicine? At the Cyprus Institute of Neurology & Genetics (CING) we encourage our students to make a difference and a positive contribution to science and society. The identification of fundamental molecular and genetic errors of disease and the development of molecular interventions to correct them is the result of innovative research in the field of Molecular Medicine. This discipline is the driving force behind medical progress and the CING is at the forefront of these developments.
MSc Molecular Medicine at the CING
The CING’s MSc Molecular Medicine programme is ideal for you if you are a clinician or a scientist looking to gain an in depth understanding of the discipline and its various applications within the broader field of Biomedical Sciences. As a Scientist you will be able to competently work in a research or a diagnostic laboratory dealing with the multiple aspects of Molecular Medicine, while contributing to the research knowledge and advances in the treatment and management of inherited diseases. As a Clinician, you will be able to use this knowledge for better management of future patients, through the use of diagnostic genetic testing. In addition, the programme will enable you upon graduation to play an important future role in cutting-edge research programmes in Molecular Medicine and Translational Medicine amongst others.
The courses you will take as a student of the Molecular Medicine programme, have been designed with a focus on the clinical activities of the CING. This is a great benefit for you as a student, as compared to taking a programme which is taught at a purely academic institution. In addition, a major advantage for you is the opportunity to take a laboratory project and work alongside the experienced Scientists and Clinicians of the CING in their respective research fields so as to gain an in depth understanding of all aspects of Molecular Medicine.
