BSc/MSc Medical Biotechnology 
Medical Biotechnology at the Medical University of Lodz
The MSc program is taught exclusively in English and the BSc program in Polish and English. At least 60 students are needed in the first semester to open the BSc course in English. The Faculty of Biomedical Sciences and Postgraduate Education symbiotically combines science and industry to guarantee the best job opportunities for graduates on both the national and international levels. Our close contacts with our partners in the Biotechnology industry ensures the quality of our study program. Our academic staff have a wealth of valuable experience – most have engaged with leading scientific institutes and universities in a number of countries, including the US, GB and Germany. Thanks to decades of industry-related practice, they are able to bring their knowledge and their enthusiasm for their areas of expertise to the classroom. The laboratories at the Medical University of Lodz are well equipped, giving our students the opportunity to develop their knowledge and practical skills in Molecular Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering. Final MSc projects are conducted individually or in small teams and aim to show various novel aspects of Medical Biotechnology, like the development of biosimilar drugs, understanding molecular aspects of diseases or developing tools for personalized medicine.

BSc and MSc in Medical Biotechnology
Medical Biotechnology is the application of Genetics, Molecular and Cell Biology to Medicine through modern technologies. A new generation of pharmaceuticals, vaccines, hormones and anti-inflammatory agents are being developed thanks to tools provided by biotechnologists, such as monoclonal antibody technology, proteomics and genetic engineering. Medical Biotechnology also facilitates the development of molecular diagnostics tools toward personalized therapies.

Graduates of the program will find rewarding careers in the bio-pharmaceutical industry, as well as in the health sector and in public policy.

MSc in Medical Biotechnology
During the Master’s course in Medical Biotechnology, you will learn about the practical applications of Biotechnology in areas of specific relevance to medical and pharmaceutical applications, such as drug design and discovery, diagnostics and molecular epidemiology. Business and entrepreneurship also constitute a core element of this program.

There is an emphasis on developing your practical laboratory skills with various opportunities for hands-on experience in a range of current techniques and practices.

You’ll also develop key skills including those associated with project management, problem solving, team work and communication.

This is a full-time course divided into four semesters.

After the first semester you may choose between three specializations. However, the timetable allows you finish two of them.


Bioconversion and recombinant technology
During this course you will learn how to develop biosimilar drugs and introduce them into practice. Practical classes will include the cloning and production of recombinant proteins using various expression systems, protein purification by the application of liquid chromatography, and the use of drug testing technologies based on cell culture, animal models and clinical trials.

Personalized medicine and Bioinformatics
This course is focused on modern applications of targeted therapies and personalized medicine. The classes combine the use of genetic epidemiology to identify new therapy targets with that of molecular diagnostics for personalized therapy. The genetic differentiation of human populations is a key subject of research and discussion, with an emphasis on differential predisposition to a range of diseases including diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, allergy and obesity.

Small molecules in biomedicine
This course is focused on developing and testing different small molecules as potential drugs. It  covers drug design methodology, as well as the synthesis and testing of active molecules using cell culture, animal models and clinical trials.
