Biomolecular Sciences

2018-2019
Deze opleiding wordt aangeboden in het Engels. Sommige van de omschrijvingen zijn daarom mogelijk alleen in het Engels beschikbaar.

The aim of the Master programme Biomolecualr Sciences is to equip the student with the knowledge, skills and insight required to operate as an independent professional within the field of biomolecular sciences and to be a suitable candidate for a subsequent course of study leading to a career in research. Having completed the programme, the student should have developed a critical scientific approach and an awareness of the ethical and societal aspects of biomolecular sciences.

Biomolecular Sciences specialisation Biological Chemistry
Omschrijving
In this specialisation we focus on the interaction of cells, cellular
structures and individual proteins with their "chemical environment".
Special focus will lie on the characterization of new drug targets and
tools to find small molecules as leads in the development of new
medicines. Furthermore, the bioactivation of and cellular responses to
drugs will get special attention.
The Master’s specialisation Biological Chemistry is organized by
Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Toxicology of the Department of
Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences of the Faculty of Sciences (FEW).

This programme gives a thorough grounding in the subjects and methods of
the Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Toxicology as well as providing a
solid preparation for one or more research internships.

Capita Selecta are offered on individual basis throughout the year.

Biomolecular Sciences specialisation Molecular Cell Biology
Omschrijving
With the Master’s Biomolecular Sciences specialisation Molecular Cell
Biology, students can further develop their skills and performance in
molecular and cellular research and prepare themselves for an (inter)
national research position. The Master’s programme Molecular Cell
Biology has been developed for students with a Bachelors degree in
Biology or Biomedical Sciences or any other relevant Bachelor's degree
(for instance Biochemistry or HLO) and is organized by the Institute for
Molecular Cell Biology (IMC) of the Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences
(FALW) in collaboration with the Faculty of Sciences of the VU
University Amsterdam and the VU Medical Center (VUmc).

This programme gives a thorough grounding in the subjects and methods of
the Department of Molecular Cell Biology (MCB), as well as providing a
solid preparation for one or more research internships.
