Biomolecular Sciences MSc

The aim of the Master programme Biomolecualr Sciences is to equip the student with the knowledge, skills and insight required to operate as an independent professional within the field of biomolecular sciences and to be a suitable candidate for a subsequent course of study leading to a career in research. Having completed the programme, the student should have developed a critical scientific approach and an awareness of the ethical and societal aspects of biomolecular sciences.
The programme is intended for students with a research-oriented profile. It trains students with bachelors ranging from biomedical sciences and biology to (bio)chemistry, physics, mathematics, bioinformatics, pharmacy and engineering, for a Master’s degree at the interface between these disciplines. The programme is focussed on the question as to how molecules lead to biological functions and how this can be examined. It therewith covers (epi)genetics, microbiology, structural biology, cell physiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, biomathematics, genomics, bioinformatics, pharmacology, toxicology, immunology, oncology, and infection biology.

The programme offers three specializations:
•    Molecular Cell Biology
•    Biological Chemistry
•    Molecular Bioinformatics
