Academic and professional knowledge and skills

The biomedical sciences Master's programme in Cancer, Stem Cells and Developmental Biology focuses on understanding processes underlying cancer and developmental biology using techniques and applications of genomic and post-genomic research including next generation sequencing, expression profiling, proteomics, advanced microscopy, bioinformatics, and systems biology approaches. Students of this programme will learn to explore the mysteries of embryonic growth, stem cells, signalling, gene regulation, evolution, and development in relation to health and disease.

The aim of this Research Master's programme is to offer education and training that builds on the growing knowledge of and methodology in information technology applied to biomedical systems and processes. The Master’s students will be trained to approach multidisciplinary problems starting from their own scientific discipline.

Students will find their way in this field of research by active participation in solving one or more biological or biomedical research questions. The programme mainly consists of practical research projects and in addition, offers a choice of theoretical courses.

The Master’s programme offers practical training in the Utrecht based research groups (listed on www.csnd.nl), as well as in affiliated groups at the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI) in Amsterdam.

The programme aims at attracting the most talented and motivated students of life sciences from The Netherlands and abroad.
