Master in Biophotonics


Program Description

Program Details


The Master’s Program in Biophotonics is worth a total of 120 ECTS. The main feature of the program is interdisciplinarity based on the unique combination of scientific directions in optics and biomedicine. The program gives the basic physical and mathematical education and deep study of the most important problems of physicochemical and molecular biology, as well as biophysical processes in complex molecular systems. The program is aimed to train highly qualified specialists in biophotonics which can analyze and predict the new directions for the development of the fundamentals of biophotonics and promising biotechnologies.

Institute of Biomedicine was created to develop internationally recognized education, research and innovation activity in the field of biomedical technologies improving the quality of human life and providing active longevity.

Institute of Biomedicine focuses on interdisciplinary academic programs, based on the research results of the Centers of Excellence and on technology projects with leading companies. The goal is to train skilled professionals with complex transdisciplinary competencies and thus provide advanced high-tech companies focused on the development of personalized medicine, cellular, genomic, post-genomic, and metabolomics technologies for combating socially significant diseases, with highly qualified personnel.
