Our understanding of the human body on a molecular level has in recent years advanced dramatically, and has led to the development of a number of new therapies and diagnostic tools for the effective treatment of diseases. The mission of the Master’s programme in Molecular Techniques in Life Science is to prepare students for a professional research career in this area – to advance the fundamental understanding of the human body and its diseases on a molecular level, or use the knowledge to develop novel diagnostic tools and treatments.

This programme is a unique collaboration between Karolinska Institutet, KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Stockholm University, in the environment of Science for Life Laboratory, Stockholm. The students will receive a comprehensive education in life science emphasising cutting-edge methods in bioinformatic analysis of big data, combined with state-of-the-art techniques used in modern “high throughput” molecular biology and how to translate biological findings into diagnostic tools and novel treatments.
