Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will have acquired an in-depth knowledge of the following: the basic characteristics of the immune system and its recognition and response mechanisms; the consequences of alterations in homeostasis of the immune system and the basic molecular characteristics of immune system pathology; the main techniques in the study of the immune system, and of the most widely-used in vivo and in vitro experimental models; scientific method and reasoning, such that the student is able to develop well-reasoned hypotheses; the concept of stem cells, the origin of stem cells, and the different types and biological functions of adult stem cells; the basic molecular elements of the system that controls the cell cycle, cell proliferation and differentiation, and some of the currently known models of cell differentiation; the immune system genes, their regulatory mechanisms and interrelationships; the pathologies comprising immune-deficiency diseases, their causes, characteristics and current treatments; the terms ‘neoplasm’, ‘benign tumour’, ‘malignant tumour’, ‘metastases’ and ‘malignant transformation’; the concept of antigen, immune system vigilance, and immune response to tumours; new therapeutic approaches to cancer.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.

General regulations

Grading scale
In the Spanish university system, modules/courses are graded on a scale of 0 to 10 points with the following qualitative equivalence:
0-4,9: «suspenso»; 5-6,9: «aprobado»; 7-8,9: «notable»; 9-10: «sobresaliente». A special mention, «Matrícula de Honor» may be granted to up to 5% of the students in a group provided they have got a «sobresaliente». To pass a module/course is necessary to get at least 5 points.
In cases of recognition of ECTS, professional experience, cultural or sports activities, or student representation no grading will be recorded but, where appropriate, the word «Apto».
