Correct use of IT in bio-healthcare environments is essential to improving research and the quality of medical attention, as well as to reducing costs.

Nowadays, complex IT systems applied to life sciences are essential to processing images and MRIs or analyzing molecular and genetic data from patients’ tissue and fluid samples. They also help improve data management and analysis, formulate new scientific hypothesis, make medical decisions, diagnose diseases and choose the best treatment for patients.

This growing use of IT in the bio-healthcare sector requires professionals to have specialized knowledge. In order to meet this need, the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) School of Professional and Executive Development offers a new postgraduate degree in Biomedical IT. This degree is aimed at biologists, chemists, biochemists, physicists, doctors, technical engineers working in the clinical sector and heads of IT systems at medical institutions.

Academic management will be carried out by Magí Lluch, founder and head of Research at Microart, which has been one of the most active companies in the BioRegion of Catalonia since it was created in 1995.

The course will begin on 28 October 2010 and run through 7 June 2011. Classes will be held Tuesday and Thursday from 6.30 pm to 9.30 pm.

Biocat, CataloniaBIO, the Biomedical Engineering Research Center (CREB) Microart and TicSalut are collaborating on this program. Therefore, the UPC School is offering professionals from companies or organizations in the BioRegion of Catalonia a 10% discount on fees. When registering, include Ref. Company/organization BioRegion of Catalonia.
