Program Description

The M.Sc. in Biomedical Sciences: Infectious and Tropical Diseases offers you the opportunity to combine courses of different disciplines and research projects in leading laboratories and institutes. Moreover, optional courses in preclinical and clinical drug research facilitate career opportunities in clinical research organisations and biopharmaceutical industries, while optional courses in molecular and cellular biomedicine prepare for a career in dedicated research and development.

Courses and research are organised during 4 semesters. The research internship takes 6 weeks in a laboratory of your choice.
