The purpose of the programme: The Program is aimed at students having background in natural science and wishing to master contemporary methodology of scientific research in order to pursue career in the field of biological engineering.
The program is designed with emphasis on practical skills development and students work in the modern Laboratory of Bioluminescent Biotechnologies. This laboratory was established through the collaboration of the world’s strongest team of scientists engaged in fundamental research of light emission by living organisms, i. e. bioluminescence, and the Nobel Laureate Professor Osamu Shimomura.

If you think that 2 years is too much to study the bioluminescence, you can enroll for our Specialized English-Taught International Semester Program to try it out.

Key courses:

  • Bioluminescent biotechnologies
  • Physics and chemistry of bioluminescence
  • Photobiophysics
  • Biological engineering
