Study molecules to solve big issues
The Master’s programme Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences (MCLS) is research oriented and takes a multidisciplinary approach to study molecules related to health and disease in cells and organisms. This may include the development of new medicines and vaccines, new strategies for crop improvement or the 'development' of enzymes to be used in industry. By the end of the programme you will be ready to start a career in biochemical, biomedical, and biotechnological research.
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 in which way chemistry, biology, biomedical sciences and physics contribute to the understanding of how these molecules work in cells and organisms. The programme provides you with a broad expertise and experience that will put you in the optimal position for a successful career in one of the many areas of Life Sciences.
You will develop extensive knowledge about cellular processes such as cellular signaling, membrane biogenesis and intracellular transport. You will also learn skills and methods to study the molecules involved in these processes by using biochemistry, structural biology, cell biology, biophysics, computational biology, proteomics and genomics. The programme offers you the flexibility to choose any specialisation within the field of molecular and cellular life sciences.
