The Master's Degree Programme in Biomedical Sciences — Biomedical Imaging specialisation track trains professionals with thorough theoretical understanding and practical skills in diverse imaging methods and technologies. This programme is taught at the University of Turku in Finland.
The studies in Biomedical Imaging provide you with strong knowledge on either cellular biology, anatomy and physiology, nanomedicine or biophysics, depending on the area of your specialisation. You will study in a highly international environment and gain excellent theoretical and practical skills in a wide range of imaging techniques and applications as well as in image analysis.
In addition, the courses cover light microscopy, advanced fluorescence techniques, super-resolution imaging techniques, PET, electron microscopy and atomic force microscopy. An understanding of the use of multimedia in a scientific context and excellent academic writing skills are emphasised. The interdisciplinary curriculum provides you with a broad spectrum of state-of-the-art knowledge in biomedical imaging related to many different areas in cell biology and biomedicine.
The interdisciplinary curriculum provides you with broad knowledge on biomedical imaging related to many areas of biomedicine and life sciences.The Biomedical Imaging specialisation track aims to train future imaging and image analysis experts to meet the increasing demand in the fields of basic and medical research as well as the high demand for imaging core facility personnel.
The Programme provides excellent possibilities for a career in life sciences. For example, you can:
- continue as postgraduate students to pursue a career as a scientist,
- work in core facility management,
- work in science administration nationally or internationally,
- work in hospital research laboratories,
- work in industry and industrial research, or
- work in imaging network or project management.
