Master Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology

General

Program Description

Methodological and problem-solving skills

Developing high-level expertise in identifying, characterising and manufacturing biopharmaceuticals is an essential aspect of this Master programme. Manufacturing biopharmaceuticals also require extensive knowledge of the applicable legal framework and the quality assurance procedures which play a vital part in an interdisciplinary setting. In order to prepare our students for the upcoming trends, we also offer complementary training in development, application and production methods for quality-assured tissue and organ replacements.
