Neurosciences at the University of Antwerp covers the entire research field from neurogenomics up to behaviour and 'in vivo' brain imaging in both animal and human. [+]
The M.Sc. in Biomedical Sciences: Neurosciences teaches the fundamental principles of neuroscience and trains to perform neuroscience research as part of a multidisciplinary team. You’ll have the possibility to join one of the university’s spearhead laboratories or institutes and to combine your study with an international experience.
Neurosciences comprise a vast multidisciplinary field of research aimed at understanding normal and pathological brain function. Combining the neuroscience field with preclinical and clinical (drug) research or with molecular and cellular life sciences enhances the multidisciplinary character. In order to plan experiments, to collect, interpret and analyse data, and to better understand how the brain really functions, you need to know how to synthesise information from different disciplines....

Through its unique collaboration with the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM), the University of Antwerp is able to offer this state-of-the master programme, integrating the most recent advances in fields like parasitology, ecology, immunology and molecular epidemiology, taught by professionals with many years of field expertise. [+]
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. The project proposal and the master’s research project and thesis last 7 months and are completed in one of the spearhead laboratories. In completing the research projects, you will gain practical experience in scientific research and learn to analyse data, write reports and give oral presentations. You will be encouraged to go abroad and complete your research work in part or entirely at a partner university.... [-]
A master in Biomedical Science has the expertise to contribute to translational research regarding current biomedical problems on an international academic level. You will have the know-how to develop, in a critical and creative manner, new insights regarding human health (you will bridge the gap between ‘pure’ sciences and the medical-clinical practice). [+]
A master in Biomedical Science has the expertise to contribute to translational research regarding current biomedical problems on an international academic level. You will have the know-how to develop, in a critical and creative manner, new insights regarding human health (you will bridge the gap between ‘pure’ sciences and the medical-clinical practice).
It is a master of 120 ECTS credits. It consists of general subjects, specialised biomedical subjects, a research internship and a master’s dissertation. In the second year of the master, you will have 18 credits to spend on elective courses. All these courses together form two learning trajectories aiming at your growth as an independent researcher and enabling you to bridge the gap between scientifical knowledge and the medical-clinical practice....
