Biomolecular Sciences

Are you interested in unraveling essential processes in living cells in order to understand 'life' at a molecular level? Would you like to use biomolecular sciences and know-how to solve fundamental medical questions or develop biobased industrial applications?

Biomolecular Sciences is a very internationally oriented research and business area that profits from a strong multidisciplinary know-how on genetics, microbiology, molecular cell biology, structural biology, biochemistry, and systems biology. During this Master’s programme, you will acquire in-depth knowledge and skills via upper level theoretical and practical training. You will become highly competent in Biomolecular Sciences and Biochemistry, as well as the more applied side of those fields, Biotechnology. Thus, you will have excellent perspectives for an independent career in an academic, medical or industrial research environment, or as a scientific consultant for the public or private sector.

The programme is organized by the Groningen Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology Institute (GBB) and teaching is, thus, closely related to the research performed at this Institute. Research is fundamental and curiosity-driven and contains specializations in the following areas:

This master's degree programme is selective, the new procedure will be published here shortly!

    The group of our Prof. Dr. Marco Fraaije at the University of Groningen is involved in a project called ROBOX co-funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 Programme for Research and Innovation. The ROBOX project brings together leading experts from Europe's top universities together with the biotechnology industry. Cutting edge biotechnology is brought to the next level to eventually replace classical chemical processes with biotechnology using enzymes - nature's most sophisticated machines.
