About the Department

European School of Medical Biotechnologies is dedicated to providing the highest quality education in basic medical sciences by offering a dynamic study environment with well-equipped labs. Biotechnology means genetically modified organisms, alien species, toxic weapons, or hormone-treated beef. It is also a tool to control plant and animal pests, preserve species, utilize genetic resources for health and nutrition, and protect the environment. This program is designed to train students to deal in technological applications involving biological application systems, living organisms, or derivatives thereof, to make or modify products to processes for specific use to bridge the gap between industry requirements and the growing demand for skilled manpower in the Medical Biotechnology sector.
Medical Biotechnology students at the IEU will learn how to contribute towards developing beneficial products to prevent and treat human diseases, learn how to communicate their findings to the general public, and eventually market their own biotechnology products and set up their own companies. Educational qualification in Biotechnology from the International European University can earn placements in research laboratories run by the government and the corporate sector. Private sector placements are in both technical and managerial positions. The biotech business is growing at an accelerated rate, with a number of companies launching innovative biotech applications. The entry of the corporate sector in biotechnology makes career prospects in this field bright.
Name of the specialty – Medical Biotechnology.
Level of Higher Education – First (Bachelor of Science) and Second (Master of Science, Doctorate, Clinical Residency) levels
Duration of studying – 4 years of full-time studying for a Bachelor of Medical Biotechnologies and 2-3 years of full-time looking (Master, Doctorate, Clinical Residency).
Medium of Instruction – English.


The Educational Process

Medical Biotechnology students at the International European University develop the skills to coordinate research projects in the fields of biotechnology and molecular medicine. The program provides a thorough preparation in molecular technology for the biotechnological use of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Students have the ability to learn how to design and develop research strategies aimed at applying emerging technology to the medical field. The International European University`s research laboratories provide advanced training opportunities with state-of-the-art scientific equipment. The objective of the course is to make students learn about the legal, safety, and public policy issues raised due to the rapid progress in Medical Biotechnology and the development of new products. The biotechnology students are supposed to understand and follow the regulatory framework important for product safety and benefit society. The students are given case histories to discuss and express their views.
The teaching methodologies conducted in the studying program include face-to-face lectures, laboratory practicals, small group teaching (problem-based learning and tutorials), workshops, computer-aided learning (CAL), seminars, presentations, industrial visits, video reviews, internships, guided reading and portfolio as well as original and independent research work. During your classes, you will gain an understanding of the state of the art in biomedical research areas, including drug and target discovery, vaccine development, biopharmaceuticals, transgenesis, gene therapy, stem cell research, and tissue engineering. The most prominent Polish doctors will give you an insight into current limitations and future prospects of biotechnological applications in medicine and the ability to apply the knowledge gained from the course lectures in short literature research and PowerPoint presentation about a relevant topic of choice.
The IEU Medical Biotechnology Course will present some of the most common issues encountered in biomedical research and biotechnology. The objective of this course is to raise awareness of the issues surrounding biotechnology and encourage critical and responsible consideration of research conduct. Topics covered will fall into three categories:
research integrity;
applied medical technologies and theoretical aspects of medicine into biological research;
contemporary issues arising from medical biotechnologies achievements, based on new scientific discoveries.
Each class will consist of lectures discussing and demonstrating how an integrated and multidisciplinary approach can yield critical new leads to our understanding of disease generation. By stimulating lectures from key players in the research field students will become familiar with the techniques, approaches, and inventions leading to future generations of pharmaceuticals. A unique aspect of our program is the focus on biotechnology in medicine. Students are trained in the sciences and business practices important to biotechnology using medical applications. Scientists with industrial biotechnology experience, legal and regulatory professionals that serve the industry, and practicing physicians will participate as instructors in the experience-directed coursework and research activities.
Knowledge of this subject will form a profound base for the instrumentation used in various advanced courses in Biotechnology and Bioinformatics. Upon completion of this course students will be able to:
Discuss significant discoveries through historical progress and their impacts on the development of molecular biology;
Demonstrate the mechanisms of DNA replication, damage, and repair in applied molecular genetics;
Understand the storage of genetic information and its transcription, translation, and regulation at the molecular level in prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems;
Demonstrate a clear understanding of basic concepts of molecular biology and will be able to apply them in different fields of Biotechnology;
Demonstrate knowledge of the working concepts of different computational tools;
Describe the information and application of different databases and effective data retrieval for solving the research problem;

Have knowledge of the fundamental principles of inheritance;
Understand the extension and deviations in Mendelian inheritance patterns;
Understand the chromosomal basis of inheritance, sex determination, and the importance of cytogenetics;
Familiarize with the principles of inheritance at the population level and also the application of pedigrees in following up inheritance;
Know the importance of genetic counseling, pre-natal and post-natal testing, and the applications of the Human Genome Project;
Demonstrate the processes in microorganisms and viruses for their replication, survival, and interaction with their environment, hosts, and host populations;
Know how viruses can be used as tools to study biological processes, as cloning vectors, and for gene transfer;
