Master’s Degrees

IMIBIC offers three Master's degree programs; Translational biomedical research, Biotechnology, and Human nutrition. After completing any of these Master's degrees, the students have direct access to the PhD Program in Biomedicine of the University of Cordoba.

The main objective of biomedical and health research is to generate new knowledge that preserves the health and wellbeing of the citizens, as well as new knowledge that contributes to a better preventive, diagnostic, curative, rehabilitative, and palliative care of patients. More specifically, modern biomedical research aims to quickly transfer the discoveries made by fundamental research that studies the origin of the diseases, from the laboratories to the clinical practice and to the benefit of the patients. This translation from the bench to the bedside poses the principal challenge to biomedical and health research today.

To reach this objective it is important to count with health researches who are adequately trained in both basic and clinical as well as in translational research aspects of human pathological processes. Therefore, offering comprehensive training to future health researchers that constitudes a new emerging profession in the National Health System and in the Science and Technology System, is also the main objective of the Master's degree.

These studies aim to equip the students with high capacity to independent and lifelong learning, innovation and decision making in the research of nutrition and metabolism.

The Master's degree helps to deepen the knowledge of the scientific foundations of human nutrition and metabolisms as well as its application to the most prevalent diseases both in adult and child populations. The studies are structured having two main career paths in mind; one to train experts in nutrition, and the other to train highly skilled researchers, allowing the students to choose career paths within and outside academia. Those choosing the research path may incorporate into one of the IMIBIC research groups in order to proceed to PhD studies, by starting their independent line of research in the area of human nutrition.
