Students of the academic Master's programs carry out a research project in the leading laboratories of Russia in order to enter the postgraduate school and continue their research. A Master's degree of such type is a classic link between undergraduate and postgraduate schools and is most suitable for those who have decided to make a career out of science.
The main task for future M.A. is to master particular subjects at the beginning of the program and to fully focus on research activities. The emphasis is on specific and respected knowledge and skills necessary for work in a certain Institute with a specific technology stack.
Department of Molecular and Cell Biology (V. A. Engelhardt Institute of Molecular Biology of the Russian Academy of Sciences)
Department of physico-chemical biology and biotechnology (Shemyakin-Ovchinnikov Institute of Bioorganic chemistry)
Department of Bioinformatics and Systems Biology (Vavilov Institute of General Genetics of the Russian Academy of Sciences)
Department of Personalized Biomedical Technologies
Department of Physics of Living Systems (Sklifosovsky Scientific Research Institute)
Department of Molecular and Translational Medicine
The Master's program is implemented on the base of the Center for Educational Programs of Biomed school. This particular program corresponds to the classic approach of Phystech for training students according to needs of a certain high-tech partner: Generium and others. In such Master's programs, teachers are mainly employees of the company.
