The professional activity of the biochemists of the School of Sciences is located in the biosanitary and biomedical field, an area of recognised prestige at the University of Navarra. Our School works closely with those of Medicine and Pharmacy, and other research centres of the University, such as the Centre for Applied Medical Research (CIMA), the Clínica Universidad de Navarra (CUN) or the Centre for Applied Pharmacobiology (CIFA). This has made it possible to create a university campus specialising in Experimental and Health Sciences that is unique in Spain.

The Degree Biochemistry has a clear orientation towards biomedical research. It includes the molecular study of disease mechanisms, and molecular approaches to the screening, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of human diseases using knowledge derived from the molecular life sciences and their applications.

The professional activity of the biochemists of the School of Sciences is located in the biosanitary and biomedical field, an area of recognised prestige at the University of Navarra, where intense basic and applied research is carried out in this field, which is essential to face the new challenges of research in biomedicine, biotechnology and health.

The students of the Degree in Biochemistry (biomedical orientation) have the possibility to participate in a specific training programme in English which, under the supervision of a tutor, allows, for example, to carry out an experimental research in Biomedicine project within the Degree, which must be prepared and defended before a court entirely in English.
