• Guarantee multidisciplinary training in the field of cellular and molecular biology to students admitted to the programme while ensuring high-level, up-to-date specialisation in specific scientific fields.
  • Provide future researchers in training in the field of cellular and molecular biology with the methodological and conceptual tools that are necessary for completing his or her doctoral thesis. In this manner, the future researcher will be able to approach the ‘biological problem’ with a wide range of purposes and without being limited to the methods and protocols used in his or her usual laboratory.
  • Have and understand knowledge that provides a foundation or an opportunity to be original in the development and/or application of ideas, often in the context of research.
  • Students will be able to apply the knowledge acquired and their problem-solving skills to new or little understood environments within broader or multidisciplinary contexts related to their area of study.
  • Students will be able to assimilate knowledge and face the complexity of making decisions based on information that, even if incomplete or limited, includes reflections on social and ethical responsibility linked to the application of their knowledge and opinions.
  • Students will be able to communicate their conclusions and the knowledge and reasons that support them to specialist and non-specialist audiences in a clear, unambiguous manner.
  • Students will have learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a largely self-directed or independent manner.
  • Sound profession-specific knowledge.
  • Advanced knowledge that allows students to approach the fundamentals of the functioning of biological systems.
  • Capacity for analysis and synthesis arising from an approach to general problems.
  • Resolution of problems and practical cases with special emphasis on those with biomedical, physiological, technological/industrial, and/or environmental relevance.
  • Ability to take decisions.
  • Ability to accept criticism and self-criticism.
  • Ability to apply theory to practice.
  • Ability to work in teams and make public presentations.
  • Acquisition of familiarity with specialised scientific language.
  • Promotion of an environment of debate and cooperation.
