Biomolecular Sciences MSc

The aim of the Master programme Biomolecualr Sciences 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 and engineering, for a Master’s degree at the interface between these disciplines. Also medical and veterinary doctors, dentists, pharmacists/pharmaceutical scientists can enter the programme. The focus is on the issue how molecules lead to biological function in health and disease. It therewith covers genetics, microbiology, structural biology, cell physiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, biophysics, biomathematics, genomics, bioinformatics, pharmacology, toxicology, spectroscopy, immunology and infection.

The programme offers a choice between two specializations:

  • Molecular Cell Biology
  • Biological Chemistry
