Biomolecular Science and Neuroscience - Track Biomolecular Sciences

Biomolecules and cells form the basis of all life on earth. In Biomolecular Sciences, we aim at a fundamental understanding of molecules and cells, e.g. on how these building blocks work together to make life possible and on how dysfunction can lead to disease.

The Minor Biomolecular Science and Neuroscience consists of the track Biomolecular Science and the track Neuroscience. During the first two courses, which are jointly given for both tracks, students will gain insight into the latest knowledge of experimental cell biology (Experimental Cell Biology I and II). After the introductory courses, students choose between one of the two tracks. In the three subsequent Biomolecular courses, students will gain hands-on experience and join on-going research on proteins, biochemical pathways and (microbial) cells.

Overview courses

  • Experimental Cell Biology I

    We start with a brief repetition of basic Cell Biology and then go ahead

    with in-depth discussion of modern Cell Biology, A central point is the importance of experiments, how is new knowledge obtained? current and emerging topics, and experimental techniques.

    See study guide.

  • Experimental Cell Biology II

    In-depth discussion of modern Cell Biology, with a particular focus on current and emerging experimental techniques. Researchers in the field present current state-of-the-art topics in Cell Biology.

    See study guide.

  • From Protein to Cell

    This course focuses on laboratory practicals, including general principles concerning design and carrying out experiments related to protein science. 

    See study guide.

  • Molecular Cell Biology

    A basic understanding of the functioning of living cells at the molecular level, and introduction to qualitative and quantitative methods applicable inside and outside the living cell. This course combines lectures, laboratory practicals and computer tasks.

    See study guide.

  • Molecular Microbiology

    Obtain in-depth theoretical knowledge of various microbiological topics, including the techniques applied to investigate those topics. This course combines lectures and laboratory practicals.
