Minor Topics in Biomedical Sciences

2018-2019

In this minor four topics in biomedical sciences are being discussed. In addition there is an open slot in January to give you the opportunity to choose another course of your own interest. Some courses will go into greater depth in certain topics (Biochemistry of Health and Disease, Molecular Principles of Brain Disorders) and Experimental Immunology will show you, hands on, how immunological research is performed and interpreted. The course Antimicrobial Compounds: From Clinical Use to Target Analysis and Drug Development will show you how interdisciplinary research may disclose new drug targets and lead to drugs for clinical use. The minor is advanced and interdisciplinary and is a good preparation for various master programs.

Minor Topics in Biomedical Sciences
Omschrijving
In this minor four topics in biomedical sciences are being discussed. In
addition there is an open slot in January to give you the opportunity to
choose another course of your own interest. Some courses will go into
greater depth in certain topics (Biochemistry of Health and Disease,
Molecular Principles of Brain Disorders) and Experimental Immunology
will show you, hands on, how immunological research is performed and
interpreted. The course Antimicrobial compounds will show you how
interdisciplinary research may disclose new drug targets and lead to
drugs for clinical use. The minor is advanced and interdisciplinary and
is a good preparation for various master programs.

Courses:
Antimicrobial compounds (period 1)
Experimental Immunology (period 1)
Biochemistry of Health and Disease (period 2)
Molecular Principles of Brain Disorders (period 2)
Optional course (period 3)

In period 3, the minor can be completed by choosing a course that is
part of another FALW minor for which you fulfil the requirements for
admission. Any other choice for a course in period 3 requires approval
of the Examination Board and results in the annotation "Vrije Minor" on
your diploma, instead of the annotation "Minor Topics in Biomedical
Sciences".
Intekenen
This minor is open to bachelor students in the following programme's:
Biomedical Sciences, Biology and Health & Life Sciences ("Gezondheid &
Leven) with a minor in Biomedical or Clinical Sciences. The maximum
number of participants is set at 80 with priority for students from the
Faculty of Science of VU University. When the maximum number has not
been reached, students of other bachelor programmes, inside or outside
VU University, may participate. All participants should have a
