The program is aimed for young graduates and with integrated master's degrees in the area of Health Sciences interested in doing basic and translational research in the area of Biology and improving and acquiring new molecular diagnostic skills applied to problems of Biopathology and Life Sciences. The course will be organized in sequential modules and will occur in parallel to the Courses of Molecular Medicine and Oncology. In the first semester there will be modules common to both courses, which will be attended by both students. The Program is organized by the Institute of Biomedical Sciences Abel Salazar and the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Porto, in conjunction with two associated laboratories, the Institute of Pathology and Molecular Immunology of the University of Porto (IPATIMUP) and the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology/ Institute of Biomedical Engineering (IBMC / INEB), and in collaboration with other institutions of higher education, hospital institutions (HS António, HS João and IPO-Porto) and other public or private institutions dedicated to research and postgraduate in Health Sciences. Advanced scientific and professional training in the area of Molecular Pathology. It enables the students to lead and integrate scientific research projects and teams. It also provides expertise in molecular diagnostics both in the area of ​​Oncology, as well as in communicable diseases and other areas of Health Sciences.
