Postgraduate studies are today an essential part of the academic life in universities. In other words, they are a natural and unavoidable continuation for undergraduates. However, they are more important for those topics which not only are a priority for the society but also show a continuous evolution in quality and quantity of knowledge per se. Among these fields, Medicine and the so called life sciences like Biology, Biochemistry and molecular Biology are the most common subjects to be considered.
These disciplines, in addition to being protagonists of an unimaginable and extraordinary progress for 30 years ago, are of particular interest because they are the foundation for human beings’ health and welfare. The assisted fertilization methods; genetic detection of future diseases or predispositions to them; transplantation medicine; gene therapy; sequencing the human genome and the development of drugs that enable a sustained growth in life expectancy, applicable to diseases against which we were powerless until a few years ago are examples of these astonishing developments.
Hence, the offer of these course has an immediate impact on personal and institutional development, to achieve the consolidation of an indispensable tool for the topic research and the training of human resources for graduate and undergraduate teaching.
