Inter-university Master's Degree in Genetic, Nutritional and Environmental Factors in Growth and Development - 7th edition
This master's degree aims to provide participants with the basic tools they need to generate scientific knowledge for improving health care. The content ranges from the genetic, nutritional and environmental factors of growth and development – taught at a highly specialized level using hypothesis formulation – to the design of studies and statistical analyses for health problems, the drawing up of research protocols for studies involving children (including ethical implications), and the publication of results.
The main objective is to train students to work as researchers, teachers and professionals with a multidisciplinary profile. They will have an overall knowledge of all areas of growth and development and will be able to act as project leaders and adapt effectively to a rapidly changing context.
