field where their responsibilities include research, development,
application and management. They are able to model and simulate
biological systems on computers, apply the methods and
instruments of Computational Biology and Biochemistry, and design,
create, manage and use databases in the field of Medical
Biotechnology. They will be able to model different biological
systems on a computer and handle large-scale data sets for such
systems. As specialists trained in science, informatics and specific
fields of medicine, they can be employed in basic research, or in the
field of Pharmaceutics, Medical/Molecular Diagnostics or
The Medical Biotechnology MSc program always starts in the
