Studying the Bachelor in Biosciences program will allow you to:

  • Focus on health research  
  • Develop innovative projects 
  • Manage and create new alternatives in health care with ethical and humanistic orientation, using cutting-edge technology.  

New approaches in medicine, such as cell therapy, and regenerative, genomic, and translational medicine, among others, are involved in the search for new molecules and patents that allow us to have new knowledge in science and its application.

This will lead us to develop an innovative treatment for various pathologies, benefiting multiple areas of health sciences. 

Additionally, at TecSalud we are committed to reinforcing research in prevention, longevity, and quality of life for patients. In this, Biosciences play a fundamental role.

Over the course of your degree program you will be able to: 

  • Carry out research stays
  • Develop and acquire new skills in the professional field.
  • Focus on Neurosciences, Molecular Biology, Research, and Innovation, among others.

At the Tecnológico de Monterrey, research is a strategic activity with participation from various focus groups specialized in topics that impact patient health.

In these groups, you will be able to experience activities to expand your learning, with the commitment to train new scientists and health researchers.
