  • Objectives

    Objectives

    The Bio.Natural Master's Degree aims to train competitive, innovation-oriented specialists suitable for the development and marketing of bioactive products from natural sources. The multidisciplinary and comprehensive approach to pharmaceutical sciences, with an emphasis on natural bioactives, such as computational studies, nanotechnology, medicinal chemistry, biological studies, dermo-cosmetics, food supplements and entrepreneurship associated with sustainable practices, drives an enriching training in promoting the use of natural products.
  • Career Opportunities

    Career Opportunities

    Industry: advanced training aimed at entering the Industry in areas related to natural products such as the Pharmaceutical Industry, Cosmetic Industry, Food Industry and Agrochemical Industry. Interconnected sectors: there are several professional opportunities that go beyond the main areas of industry, also encompassing Quality Control, Biotechnology, Fine Chemistry (synthesis), Chemical Analysis, Environmental Technology and Companies in Auditing, Consulting and Project Management. Teaching and Research: the possibility of joining research teams and/or pursuing 3rd cycle studies (PhD) are important and relevant options for students.
  • Observations

    Observations

    Partnerships: The course management is establishing partnerships with several companies (already in agreement with 6 companies) and leading research centers in the field of natural bioactives, covering applications such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, medical devices, and food supplements. This collaboration will provide students with the opportunity to conduct original research on these products and apply them in internships at relevant companies, including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), as well as the possibility of starting new startups in the sector. This course is based on the European master's project: BioNatural - Natural Products Chemistry for Bioactives Application (Erasmus Mundus Design Measures program - 101127246 - Chemistry of Natural Bioactives), with a consortium of 4 institutions (Lusófona University, Siena University, Ramon Llull University, and Namur University). https://bionatural.cbios.ulusofona.pt/
