M.Sc. Molecular and Cellular Medicine
A global vision of research
With new technologies arising, research projects are becoming more and more specific and sometimes disconnected from today’s medical challenges. Therefore, to quickly move towards personalized medicine, it is essential that new approaches in basic research support the understanding of biomedical issues.
With the aim of meeting emerging needs, the IRCM has developed a Master's degree in cellular and molecular medicine (MCM) in order to train a new generation of scientists with deep knowledge in molecular biology, and sensitized to a global vision of the study of human diseases. This unique and innovative option is affiliated with the molecular biology programs of the Faculty of Medicine of the Université de Montréal.
Objectives of the molecular and cellular medicine option
- Train versatile graduate students who will have a broad view of biomedical research
- Offer a unique training in translational research with a view to aligning basic research with the needs of clinical practice
- Train a new generation of scientists mastering new technologies in basic research
- Provide high level intensive training, allowing students to validate their interest in biomedical research and adequately prepare them for postgraduate studies
