Degree programme objectives

The newly formed study program Biomedical Sciences was established by joining two originally independent study programs of Medical Biology and Anatomy, Histology and Embryology with a brand new one, not accredited yet, program of Molecular Medicine founded at Ceitec MU, into one robust study program with three specializations (Cell and Tissue Morphology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Molecular Medicine).

  • Objectives

    The newly formed study program Biomedical Sciences was established by joining two originally independent study programs of Medical Biology and Anatomy, Histology and Embryology with a brand new one, not accredited yet, program of Molecular Medicine founded at Ceitec MU, into one robust study program with three specializations (Cell and Tissue Morphology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and Molecular Medicine).

  • Learning Outcomes

    After successfully completing his/her studies the graduate is able to:

    • have a perfect understanding of the latest developments in their given discipline-area;
    • understand all related fields to their discipline, or eventually relatively quickly switch their focus area;
    • be fluent in a wide spectrum of the theoretical and methodical foundations of scientific work;
    • be as methodically, procedurally, and linguistically knowledgeable, as to be able to immediately fill the position of a post-doctoral researcher in state-of-the-art laboratories abroad, without the need for any further preparations
    • be very well educated about the facts in the areas of Intellectual Properties, Ethics, Scientific Work, and specific ethical issues related to their discipline
    • professionally lead junior colleagues;
    • independently design and conduct research projects throughout all of their phases;
    • interpret the results of their work up to the level of being able to present them at international conferences or having them published in a prestigious international science magazine;
    • prepare a competitive application for grants;
    • relay their experiences and results in the discipline through pedagogical activities, scholarly lectures, and scientific publications published in professional magazines
    • use modern technologies;
    • develop their research results into practical applications
  • Occupational Profiles of Graduates

    The new Biomedical Sciences study programme is in the process of being internationally augmented through the increase of recruitment of applicants from abroad, scientific and publication activities of doctoral students, and creation of new conditions for inter-disciplinary solutions of given doctoral thesis topics. The strengthening of social-management and widely-applicable abilities is also emphasised.

    This increases the realistic chance for the graduates to become a part of prestigious scientific teams all over the world, primarily in:

    - Scientific research organisations and academic institutions (research institutes, universities) focusing on biomedical research and education - in their early years as interns and then as the heads of the research team or programme, or heads of the core facilities etc. Some of the graduates will be able to fill teaching positions at these institutions;

    - State-of-the-art applied research laboratories focused on the development of new Biomedical methods, especially methods of diagnosis in Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering, testing new pharmaceuticals, and preparing pharmaceuticals intended for advanced therapies (ATMP). In this context they will be able to fill the positions of specialists and developers;

    - In the commercial sector, specifically the areas of training regarding the marketing of pharmaceuticals intended for Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering, and Morphological Diagnostics;

    - Furthermore, thanks to their knowledge of the aspects of intellectual properties and transfer of technologies, the graduates will be well equipped to found start-ups and spin-offs.

  • Practical Training

    Practical training (besides lab work) is not a compulsory part of the study.

  • Goals of Theses

    The standards of dissertation theses at LF MU are regulated by the Dean's Directive No. 5/2021 "Guidelines on the formal requirements of dissertation theses prepared at the MU Faculty of Medicine"
