Instituto de Biotecnologia UNAM

The IBT offers the Graduate Program:

Masters or Doctoral Degree in Biochemical Sciences.

The Graduate Program in Biochemical Sciences was created, in 1996, by the fusion of the program in Biotechnology offered here, with that in Chemistry (Biochemistry) from the School of Chemistry (SC). The program in Biotechnology, approved by the University Council in May 1984, was hosted by the Institute of Biomedical Research, and also, from 1985 onwards, by the Center for Research in Genetic Engineering & Biotechnology or CEINGEBI (now IBT). In 1992 the School of Chemistry joined the program, setting the precedent for a shared graduate program in the University between a faculty and a research institute. After more than 10 years of work, the program had graduated 148 MSc and 72 PhDs up to 1996.

By September 1996, when the Program in Biotechnology became the Program in Biochemical Sciences, there were already 117 students at the IBT, and 52 at the SC; of these, 31% were doctoral students, and 69% at masters level.

The program in Biochemical Sciences incorporates its Graduate Students into one of these research areas: Biotechnology, Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Biochemical Engineering, Microbiology, Immunology, Cell Biology, Structural Biology and Microbial Ecology

Within the Program in Biochemical Sciences, it is possible, in cases where the candidate shows sufficient academic aptitude, to enter directly into the doctorate, without first obtaining an MSc. It is recommended that the graduate student has a Bachelor’s degree in a related area, such as Biology, Chemistry, Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Chemical Engineering, Agronomy, etc.

The aim of the Masters Program is the formation of human resources of a high academic quality, able to support and develop projects within basic and/or applied research, as well to teach and participate in scientific dissemination.
The general goal of the Doctoral Program is the formation of researchers of the highest academic quality, able to partake in original and independent research, whether basic or applied.

The Academic Units involved in this program are striving to elevate teaching and research in chemico-biological sciences in Mexico, promoting multi- and inter-disciplinarity and developing at the same time the formation and integration of groups at a high level, capable of creating the human resources necessary for the development of science and technology in the country.
