Nanosciences Admissions 2020


This M.Sc. program will provide training in the field of Molecular Medicine. The course is offered by the Division of Molecular Medicine, Amrita Centre for Nanosciences and Molecular Medicine, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Centre (Kochi), Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham. Molecular medicine is the study of molecular and cellular phenomena in biological systems that enhances our understanding of human diseases and facilitates discovery research in disease prevention, diagnosis and therapy. Molecular Medicine offers new scientific tools to address mechanistic aspects of different diseases, both in diagnostics and therapy.

One of the unique strengths of this course is its emphasis on an interdisciplinary approach whereby medical sciences, molecular and biochemical aspects of biology is addressed.  Students will be encouraged to participate in interdisciplinary learning activities, and some of the courses from different programs are jointly offered.
