The Master's program in Biomedicine will shed light on contemporary problems and methods in biomedicine. You will be trained in experimental work as well as written and oral presentations of independent scientific papers.
We offer a high quality laboratory course (MBI-3012), where you will be trained in cell culturing, detection and expression of DNA, RNA and proteins, imaging, electron microscopy, histological analysis and immunohistochemistry. You will also be trained in health and safety procedures in laboratories.
In the second semester you will choose 3 elective courses (30 ECTS). International students will attend courses in Tromsø while Norwegian students also have the opportunity to go abroad as exchange students. There will be elective courses available in biomedical topics, as listed in the table (programme structure).
After passing the laboratory- and the elective courses, you will be able to start working on your master project (3rd and 4th semester - a total of 60 ECTS). You will work under supervision alongside our researchers in one of our research groups. We offer an international research-environment with researchers from all corners of the world. Your specialization will be chosen according to the project you choose to work with. Your project thus will be based on research performed by one of the researchgroups at the Department of Medical Biology (IMB). You are expected to do individual research under supervision. The Master's thesis is expected to be an independent body of scientific work performed and presented by each student.
