MSc Biomedical Sciences

The Biomedical Sciences programme is strongly oriented towards the scientific background of health and disease and preclinical research. Students will study life processes and their abnormalities within the intact organism, in an interdisciplinary environment of basic scientific research at the faculty of science and engineering and the more medical oriented environment of the university medical center. Up to 75% of the master's programme consist of independent research projects in the following areas of expertise:

  • The mechanisms of inflammation and immunity, allergies and tumours
  • The transplantation applications of embryonic stem cells
  • How nutrition influences health
  • Diseases of the brain and nervous system
  • The biological aspects of emotional and affective disorders such as depression, anorexia nervosa and obesity
  • The molecular cellular biology underlying age-related pathologies

This Master's programme offers a Science, Business & Policy profile for students that want to focus on the business and policy side of science, and a Research profile. Within the programme students can follow the specialisation Biology of Ageing, which provides training as a researcher mainly in the field of ageing and age-related pathologies, and includes three track-specific compulsory modules:
