Molecular Medicine

Molecular Medicine stems from knowledge gained from basic science and applied biomedical research. This new medicine has produced the latest biotechnologies, such as, cell-based therapies, gene therapy, targeted therapies, biomarker technology, molecular diagnostics, pharmacogenomics and personalized medicine. The curriculum of this M. S. Molecular Medicine course includes this new knowledge supplemented by background courses on the fundamental science behind it.

Through this program, the St. Luke’s Medical Center College of Medicine- WHQM will upgrade skills for the application of molecular medicine in the clinical setting, through a unique opportunity for training in the fully-equipped research laboratories of the St. Luke’s Research and Biotechnology Division. It will also strengthen the capabilities of the current crop of medical practitioners and allied health professionals towards a new way of doing medicine. Moreover; it will provide an opportunity for medical educators to obtain a post-graduate degree, thus improving the academic profile of our medical schools.

The objectives of the program are:

  • To give students a firm foundation in the biomedical sciences and relevant emerging technologies
  • To provide rigorous training in a broad spectrum of applications in molecular medicine such as stem cell technology, point of care diagnostics, pharmacogenomics, medical biotechnology, targeted therapy, molecular diagnostics, and genomic medicine
  • To develop a highly trained manpower base for Molecular Medicine in the Philippines including clinicians, med techs, scientists, medical faculty, and other healthcare professionals
  • To develop a highly trained manpower base for Molecular Medicine in the Philippines including clinicians, med techs, scientists, medical faculty, and other healthcare professionals
    • form a critical mass of local manpower capable of translating molecular medicine into the advancement of medical practice in the Philippines
    • catalyze high-level research in the field of molecular medicine in the local setting
    • transform higher medical education in the Philippines to global standards of excellence
