M.Sc. Molecular Medicine

The M.Sc. Molecular Medicine program prepares the graduates to understand and learn the concepts of Molecular Medicine for application with molecular basis of disease management and precision diagnostics. Students will develop practical skills and knowledge that will enable them to work in clinical settings and also do research.

Learning and practice will equip the students with the skills necessary to conduct biomedical research with medical application. The program is a response to the increasing demand for qualified scholars in biomedicine and molecular biology.

The students will pursue advanced skilling and training in the field of Molecular Medicine in the newly established state-of-the-art ‘JBS Haldane Centre for Molecular Medicine (HCM)’. The JBS Haldane Centre aims to foster the spirit of translational science and applications in the field of medicine particularly in the emerging fields of Precision Oncology, Stem Cell Therapy, Molecular Cytogenetics, DNA Sequencing, IVF, Embryology, Genetic Counselling and Immunotherapy.

Core areas of study are molecular basis of disease, epigenetics, molecular oncology, stem cells, medical genetics, immunology, and endocrinology. Students can specialize in clinical research, IVF, genetic counselling, bioinformatics, and soft biology.

Postgraduate programs at Silicon are designed and intended to provide deeper knowledge and insight into the specific field of study. However, Silicon encourages students to undertake interdisciplinary projects. It supports research and practice in such an initiative by assigning additional project guides from other departments to mentor the students.
