The rapid advances in the fields of Biomedical Imaging, Medical Informatics and Bioinformatics, as well as their wide spreading use in Life Sciences (medicine, biology, biotechnology) create new challenges but also exciting new career opportunities for young, dynamic university graduates with different backgrounds (computer scientists, engineers, biologists, medical doctors etc) who are willing to deepen their understanding by combining knowledge sources and specialize in these important and fast developing fields that heavily depend on advanced Information Technology skills.
The Postgraduate Program "Information Technologies in Medicine and Biology" (I.T.M.B.) is by its very nature intensely interdisciplinary. Its objective is to strengthen the knowledge and skills of its postgraduate students in the application of informatics, applied mathematics, and statistical analysis methods in Life Sciences and Biotechnology. The program focuses on subjects related to the organization, management, processing and analysis of biomedical signals and data, as well as on the development of models, algorithms, analysis methods and software tools for bioinformatics, computational biology and systems biology.The I.T.M.B. Postgraduate Program is organized and administered by the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (UoA), in cooperation with the Technological Educational Institute (TEI) of Athens, and in collaboration with the Foundation for Biomedical Research of the Academy of Athens (BRFAA) and the Institute of Informatics and Telecommunications of the National Centre for Scientific Research "Demokritos". The courses are taught by Professors and Researchers of the above institutions with experience in the Program’s fields of study, and by scientists-specialists of other institutions in Greece and abroad.
The Postgraduate Program I.T.M.B awards two degrees:
- Master of Science (M.Sc) in:
- Medical Informatics
