Faculty

            

The master of bioinformatics has a faculty staff with both a long experience in teaching and research careers widely recognized. To implement this master, expert researchers have been selected in each of the subjects taught. As an example, more than 20 participating researchers from up to 6 different departments at UAB, : i) Computer Architecture and Operating Systems; ii) Biochemistry and Molecular Biology; iii) Genetics and Microbiology, iv) Mathematics, v) Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology and Preventive Medicine, and vi) Chemistry. The profile of these researchers is also diverse: professors, associate professors, postdocs, researchers ICREA, Ramón y Cajal researchers, among others.

Besides UAB professors, researchers of CRAG (Genomics Research Center) and other research centers and hospital institutes (IibSant PauIrsiCaixa, VHIR) also lecture in this master. Throughout the master also it will have the visit of prestigious national and international researchers and entrepreneurs in the world of bioinformatics and genomics, who will share their experiences to our students.
