Medical Genetics and Molecular Diagnostics

General information

This is a professionally-oriented Bachelor's and following Master's interfaculty study programme that is taught at the Faculty of Science and the Faculty of Medicine MU. It is a professional branch that is drafted to meet a growing demand of all the range of workplaces (especially genetic, microbiology and biochemical laboratories of health care institutions) for specialists proficient in modern methods of medical genetics and molecular biology with a good theoretical knowledge and developed practical skills. Therefore, the purpose of this study programme is to provide both excellent theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the branch of medical genetics and molecular biology.

A successful graduate is able to

  • show deep knowledge in the fields of clinical genetics, oncology and molecular diagnostics and demonstrate skills necessary for work with laboratory equipment
  • master highly specialized molecular methods and diagnostics procedures based on DNA and RNA analyses in clinical laboratories for results analyses of laboratory examinations
  • perform laboratory diagnostics of inherited diseases on the level of chromosomal abnormalities and mutational changes
  • perform cytogenetical and molecular biology examinations of hematological malignities and solid tumors
  • use practical skills and deep knowledge of methods of cellular and molecular biology and genetics

Graduate employment

Graduates of this programme can perform basic analyses in laboratories concentrated on genetics, cytogenetics and DNA diagnostics. At these laboratories, graduates can use their theoretical and practical skills in genetic counselling of patients and their close relatives or molecular biology diagnostics of organisms, pathological stages of cells and genomes.
