MSc Biobanks & Complex Data Management


As a rapidly growing field in the life sciences, biobanking is the collection, storage and processing of biological samples, such as human, animal, or plant tissues for research within public hospitals or private laboratories. The management of a biobank and its associated complex data is a critical aspect of modern healthcare.

The MSc in Biobanks and Complex Data Management was born to inculcate in students the knowledge and skills necessary to thrive in this field.

Join us and you will:

  • Study the fundamental principles of biobanking, including the collection, processing, storage, and retrieval of biological samples.
  • Learn about the management of complex data related to these samples, such as bioinformatics, statistical analysis, and data visualization.
  • Partake in two, six-month internships abroad
