RVOE: SEP-SES/21/119/01/1640/2016

Graduate postgraduate in Molecular Biomedicine, able to design and develop collaborative and cutting-edge research integrating different disciplines of the medical, biological and chemical areas with complementary approaches, as well as mastering molecular biomedicine technologies, techniques and laboratory equipment in Biomedical research through the development of biological, biotechnological and chemical products to solve health problems, enhance research in biomedicine and contribute to the quality of life of the population.

Likewise, it seeks to train doctors capable of promoting and effectively communicate the results of their research in scientific media that represent, through a scientific contribution, an advance in knowledge within the biomedical field.

The graduate integrates the theoretical, methodological, practical and technical fundamentals of the discipline, acquired during the different subjects of the curriculum, to apply in his professional practice and to develop research in the biomedical area.

The knowledge, skills and abilities, attitudes and values that the graduate will develop are:

  • Use laboratory techniques and equipment to obtain natural and synthetic compounds with biomedical application, by extracting or synthesizing new materials.
  • To examine the data obtained in the development of experiments during the obtaining of natural and synthetic compounds using different techniques of substance analysis, for the treatment and analysis of the results of the investigation.
  • Synthesize the results of research in technical reports, review articles and posters, using the appropriate formats to disseminate new knowledge.
  • Analyze results of the development of biomedical products and processes using statistical methods in experiments to generate continuous improvement and ensure effectiveness and reproducibility of research results.
  • Analyze and integrate efficiently and effectively the results of their research to present them through the writing of articles in specialized scientific journals and outreach, oral presentations in seminars and active participation in national and international congresses and symposia.
  • Develop and defend clear, adequate and efficient research proposals, in obtaining the necessary funds to carry out quality research, participating in the calls for national and international organizations in molecular biomedicine.
Skills and abilities
  • Design original proposals for interdisciplinary research in biological health sciences and chemistry, applied to biomedical problems, which contribute to the generation of original scientific knowledge in their area and which are based on the highest ethical principles.
  • Develop and conduct projects in the resolution of biomedical problems applying fundamentals of the different areas of molecular biomedicine, to generate border knowledge.
  • Participate in collaborative interdisciplinary working groups for the development of research projects.
  • To implement technological alternatives in the development of biomedical products for the diagnosis and treatment of pathologies through systematic methodologies specific to the area of molecular biomedicine.
  • It participates competitively in the various sectors of academia, government or industry through its participation in national and international calls to promote research programs in biomedicine.
  • It commits itself to its continuous professional development, through its participation in different academic forums of its discipline, to stay updated in the biomedical area and to exercise its profession with efficiency and responsibility.
  • It is committed to the training of high level human resources as a transmitter of knowledge in theoretical and / or experimental teaching, with the purpose of contributing to the advancement of science.
  • It shows availability and flexibility when working as a team, being tolerant to different personal and professional points of view, to achieve a harmonious and productive collaborative work.
  • It proposes sustainable solutions through the application of methods and techniques that do not affect the environment and its community.
  • It undertakes to carry out research in favor of the human being by applying the ethical standards of biomedicine to contribute to raising the quality of life of the population.
  • Respect the ethical principles in the exercise of your profession for the benefit of all living beings.
  • Propose strategies that demonstrate a social commitment for the benefit of society.
  • 1. Natural and synthetic compounds with biomedical applications: In this line we investigate new pharmacological actives, the synthesis, purification, characterization and evaluation of organic and inorganic compounds, including nanomaterials, whose biological activity has potential biomedical applications, emphasizing the specific interaction that these compounds can have with different biomolecules with In order to elucidate the mechanisms of biological activity.
  • 2. Preclinical and clinical research on biotechnology and therapeutics: In this line several techniques associated with the field of translational research are used to find new treatments and diagnoses, including the evaluation of the viability of new chemical and biotechnological products through the design of preclinical and clinical studies considering their phases, tests and tools needed.
