The CMB programme aims at shaping competitive biotechnologists, demanded in the medical, environmental and industrial fields. Together with high quality and dynamic teaching, CMB provides practical experience in state-of-the-art biotech laboratories. In the last semester, the students' practical training is completed with a research project performed within research groups at CIBIO (Centre for Integrative Biology, University of Trento), or in one of the collaborating laboratories in other European universities, or in companies operating in the biotechnology or pharmaceutical sector.
The CMB programme is designed to provide prospective students with knowledge and experience essential for today's biotechnologists:
detailed knowledge of the functioning and regulation of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells;
methods for the structural and functional characterization of biological macromolecules and the cellular processes in which they are involved;
detailed understanding of the pathological processes at the molecular, cellular and systemic levels;
concepts in designing and manufacturing biotechnology products, such as biopharmaceuticals, diagnostics and vaccines.
