Master degrees
We offer a multidisciplinary, transversal and integrated Master training from the bench to the bedside grounded on the four major areas of biomedical research: cell biology and cancer, neurosciences, cardiovascular biology and infection and immunity.


Cardiovascular rehabilitation allows, as a secondary prevention strategy, recovering a patient after an acute cardiovascular event, as a whole and in a multidisciplinary way. This process reduces disability, allowing early return to work and postponing retirement. It improves the quality and quantity of life and reduces the negative psychological effects and new events, which are more serious due to the repetition and continuation of the disease progression.

In a previous phase, no less important and in continuity with secondary prevention, primary prevention should also be considered (...)


The Master Degree in Clinical Nutrition has a problem approach teaching methodology, with an essentially practical approach, directed to institutionalized patients, outpatients and also to healthy individuals.

The lecturers integrate Research Centres/Reference and Provision of Care Centres related to different pathologies and are involved in Clinical and/or Basic Research. This integration provides master students with opportunities to directly contact research related to clinical practice. The Degree is closely linked to the Nutrition Laboratory of the Faculty of Medicine, an (...)

Clinical Research is the basis of scientific clinical knowledge, playing a key role in the progress and improvement of knowledge and innovation in Health.


The Master Degree in Epidemiology trains students to understand, analyse and carry out epidemiological and clinical research studies. To this end, 13 courses are proposed (12 mandatory and at least 1 optional), which integrate knowledge and practices in epidemiology, research methods, biostatistics and health sciences. Students are followed up during their thesis work by a support office and discussion seminars.

After completing the taught component of the Master Degree in Epidemiology (which corresponds to the Specialization Course), students may proceed to writing a Master (...)


The increase in life expectancy and environmental changes in terms of food availability and physical inactivity created conditions for a profound change in the level of morbidity and risk of mortality of human beings in developed countries.

This finding needs to be accompanied by a deepening of knowledge and research in this area, from a multidisciplinary perspective.

The transformations that have occurred should be studied at academic level, in the fields of knowledge that are related, in a transversal way - public health, biology, biochemistry, genetics, psychology, psychiatry (...)

Palliative care today represents a standard of care for patients with advanced chronic diseases and for their families. This area of knowledge stems from the growing ageing of the population and the corresponding change in patterns of mortality and morbidity. It is also the result of a societal context of increasing individualization of family ties, and also a reaction to an increase in the suffering of vulnerable populations due to abandonment or therapy obstinacy in an increasingly technological society. Palliative care has been progressively implemented, in the last decade, in the (...)
