Study the small parts to solve big issues
The Master in Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences (MCLS) is research oriented and takes a multidisciplinary approach to the study of molecules, cells, and organisms. By the end of the programme you will have gained sufficient fundamental knowledge to start working on applications in the field of medical and biotechnological issues. These applications may include the development of new medicines and vaccines, new strategies for crop improvement, or enzymes to be used in industry. Within the MCLS program a track for Computational Biology is organized. The research projects and courses in this track focus on solving interesting biological problems with mathematical modelling and computational techniques.
THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOU?
MCLS is the ideal Master’s programme if you are interested in molecules as the basis of life and disease and if you want to know how chemistry, biology, biomedical sciences, and physics contribute to our understanding of how these molecules work. The interplay of molecules in cells and organisms is the central focus of the programme.
