Specializations within this programme
The Agrobiotechnology program lies at the intersection of biology, chemistry, physics, technology, and agriculture. Its objects of research are viruses, bacteria, fungi, and tissues of plants, animals, and humans, as well as extracellular and cell components. Our graduates are able to create a wide range of products with certain properties for plant protection, food and feed supplements, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and medical applications.
Molecular Biology and Biotechnology
The program trains highly qualified specialists in the fields related to the development of new diagnostic and treatment methods, drug delivery, development of nanodevices and materials with new properties, and is aimed at students who want to do international-level research.
In the second semester, the students get to choose an individual learning track in one of the following specializations:
- Modern Cell Biology and Microbiology
- Molecular Biology
- Industrial Brokerage in the Field of Biotechnology
The FoodTech program offers multiple specializations, including Products for Active Aging and Sports Nutrition conducted entirely in English.
The specialization is based on modern principles of nutrition science and covers the issues of preserving, maintaining, and developing human body resources to adapt to the internal and external environmental conditions. Its main focus lies on the connection between nutrition and lifestyle – essential elements of high-quality modern life.
ITMO International Admission Office
This program is based on a unique concept that includes training in the competencies of genomic bioinformatics and experimental molecular biology. The aim of the program is to train full-stack specialists in the field of genomics, capable of conducting their own full-cycle research. The program uses a project-based training approach for the implementation of urgent scientific tasks, including industrial partners' tasks.
Depending on the project, from the second semester, the students choose an individual learning track in one of the following specializations:
- Prokaryote Genomics
- Plant Genomics
- Animals and Humans Genomics
