CB6 - Possess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and / or application of ideas, often in a research context.

CB7 - That the students know how to apply the acquired knowledge and their ability to solve problems in new or little-known environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study.

CB8 - That students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of making judgments based on information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments.

CB9 - That students know how to communicate their conclusions - and the ultimate knowledge and reasons that support them - to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way.

CB10 - That students possess the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous.


CG1 - Provide a theoretical-practical training of the methodological foundations of basic and applied research for the development of IDI activities in Fundamental Biology, Biomedicine and Veterinary aimed at pursuing further studies and professional practice.

CG2 - Provide the powers related to those established in current regulations on the protection of animals used for experimentation and other scientific purposes.

CG3 - Learn to look for information, to select it, to gather and interpret relevant data on different topics.

CG4 - Obtain skills in the planning of experiments, work planning, rational use of means and resources, data collection and analysis, their faithful record, and analysis, presentation and defense of them.
