Cellular-level knowledge, tuned for healing

Conducted in collaboration with Semmelweis University Budapest, our Master's program in Medical Biotechnology provides an opportunity for students to acquire advanced theoretical and practical expertise at the convergence of medicine and informatics.  

Within the rapidly evolving bio-medicinal field, medical biotechnologists play crucial roles encompassing research, development, application, and management. Proficient in computer-based modelling and simulation of biological systems, they possess knowledge of contemporary methods in molecular diagnostics and therapies. Additionally, they excel in designing, creating, managing, and utilizing databases specific to medical biotechnology, enabling them to handle and interpret expansive datasets of medical significance. These specialists, trained in science, informatics, and specific medical fields, find employment avenues in basic research, pharmaceuticals, medical/molecular diagnostics, or biotechnology. 

From Data to Health 

Learn to apply and develop advanced molecular diagnostic and bioinformatics methods, manipulate cells and biomolecules, and model and simulate biological systems. 

Research and Innovation for Our Health 

Our graduates can pursue careers in areas where new therapeutic and investigative procedures are developed. They can shape the future of healthcare in diagnostic and biotechnological companies, research laboratories, and experimental medical science institutes. 


  • Bionanotechnology 
  • Biopharmacy-Pharmacokinetics 
  • Recombinant DNA Techniques 
  • Bioinformatics 


Specializations offered within the program:  

  • Molecular Biotechnology 
  • Applied Bioinformatics 

The tailored specializations in the program equip our students for various realms of research, development, and innovative pursuits. Students are required to select one of the specializations upon enrolment in the Master’s program. 

  • Molecular Biotechnology

For those most interested in experimental aspects of medical biotechnology, working in a “wet lab” with molecules, cells, tissues, and/or animals. The specialization offers courses in stem cell and tumor biology, laboratory diagnostics and drug delivery systems, and more, focusing both on the biological background and the techniques that can be applied. 

  • Applied Bioinformatics

For students wishing to get in-depth knowledge in computational biology, most importantly in molecular data analysis, data mining, and structural bioinformatics, with emphasis on data handling, analysis, and interpretation. Optional courses in systems biology and Java programming are also available. 


The curriculum of the study program (120 credits) comprises the following modules: 

  • Fundamentals in Natural Sciences and Mathematics (requirements for diploma: 15-25 credits) 
  • Economics and Humanities (requirements for diploma: 5-15 credits)
