GBB has the ambition to perform research of the highest standard in the field of biomolecular sciences, with a focus on proteins. We aim to understand the structure and dynamics of proteins in relation to their function and activity; to unravel the functional role of proteins in living cells; and to obtain insights in the fundamental properties of proteins that are relevant for application in health and the future bio-based economy.

Academic degree programmes are characterized by relatively long, continuous research periods in the curriculum. Although the degree programme in Pharmacy is rather strongly oriented towards a future career as a pharmacist, a compulsory component in the Master's phase comprises a research project lasting about six months. This way, students will gain experience in academic research, which will enhance their academic development.
The international Master's degree programme in Medical Pharmaceutical Sciences and the international Top Master's degree programme in Medical and Pharmaceutical Drug Innovation are even more strongly research oriented.
The research project in the Pharmacy Master's degree programme can be completed at one of the eleven departments. In addition, possibilities are also offered by the UMCG, for example at the Hospital Pharmacy or the department of Clinical Chemistry.
A Master's degree will grant admission to the PhD programme, which will lead to the conferral of a doctorate (PhD degree). The Groningen graduate schools, including GUIDE and BCN, offer challenging training programmes for PhD students.
Research groups: Analytical Biochemistry, Drug Design, Pharmacotherapy and Pharmacological Patient Care, Molecular Pharmacology, Pharmacoepidemiology and Pharmacoeconomics, Pharmaceutical Analysis, Pharmaceutical Biology, Pharmaceutical Gene Modulation, Pharmaceutical Technology and Biopharmacy, Pharmacokinetics, Toxicology and Targeting
The Groningen Institute of Evolutionary Life Sciences (GELIFES) fills a special niche in the field of life sciences that not only covers mechanistic, evolutionary and ecological approaches, but also specifically aims at the integration of these fields that are traditionally studied in isolation.
GELIFES is part of the Faculty of Science and Engineering and embraces several research groups:
- Behavioural & Physiological Ecology
- Conservation Ecology Group
- Evolutionary Genetics, Development & Behaviour
- Genomics Research in Ecology & Evolution in Nature
- Theoretical Research in Evolutionary Life Sciences
