The combination of research knowledge and entrepreneurial thinking spurs medical progress. If the translation of findings from basic research into the world of business succeeds, ideas turn into marketable products, therapies and applications. Conversely, research can be inspired by practical needs in the life sciences.
Motivated by UZH’s strategy as an "Entrepreneurial University", the new program provides students with a background in the Life Sciences with both interdisciplinary, science-based as well as practice-oriented training in entrepreneurial life sciences and translational medicine.
Further information about the requirements is available at www.bme.uzh.ch. The courses are in English and start in HS 2021.
