Medicine

The people, language, and culture of the Netherlands is referred to as "Dutch". A modern European country today, Netherlands preserved its highly international character and is known for its liberal mentality. The Netherlands has many universities. The country has recently converted their own titles into the bachelor/master system. There are two types of universities: Academic (focussing more on theoretical knowledge, aka "Universiteit") or Applied Sciences (focussing more on practical knowledge, aka "Hogeschool")

MSc Toxicology and Environmental Health

Utrecht University
Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 Netherlands Utrecht

Our Master’s programme in Toxicology and Environmental Health has been designed with this in mind, training you in the fundamentals of toxicology, environmental epidemiology, emerging toxicological agents such as nanoparticles and zoonotic components, and exposure assessment. [+]

LEARN ALL ABOUT HEALTH RISK ASSESSMENT In the course of our day-to-day life, we come into contact with a vast number of chemical, biological, and physical agents that could do us harm. These agents are present in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and even the food we eat. We encounter them when we travel and when we work or when we use consumer goods such as cosmetics or electrical equipment. Determining the source of these risks, and quantifying their effects, requires cooperation by experts across a host of different disciplines. Our Master’s programme in Toxicology and Environmental Health has been designed with this in mind, training you in the fundamentals of toxicology, environmental epidemiology, emerging toxicological agents such as nanoparticles and zoonotic components, and exposure assessment. This programme will enable you to assess the risks present in the workplace or the food chain. The multidisciplinary nature of this programme means that you will have the flexibility to specialise in a particular field or undertake more generalist training in risk assessment. You may also take part in experimental research in the fields of neurotoxicology, immunotoxicology, allergies, in vitro toxicology, endocrine toxicology, environmental toxicology, and chemistry. Alternatively, you may wish to undertake practical work in environmental or occupational exposure assessment engaging in activities such as exposure modelling or in-depth analysis of samples taken from a variety of sources. As a graduate of this programme, you will be qualified to assess the impact of toxicological agents on populations or work environments by applying the principles of environmental and occupational epidemiology. Programme objective This MSc programme will give you the knowledge and skills needed to assess chemical, biological, and physical hazards, as well as the risks associated with exposure to toxicological agents. After completing the MSc programme in Toxicology and Environmental Health, you will: have a thorough understanding of risk assessment terminology, principles, and methodology; be able to perform a basic risk assessment, making use of toxicological or epidemiological data; have a broad appreciation of biological, chemical, and physical environmental health hazards, both indoors and outdoors, as well as their potential impact on human health; understand the multi‐disciplinary nature of risk assessment; have an understanding of current and emerging issues and techniques in health risk assessment; and be able to design and set‐up a targeted health risk assessment, making optimal use of the information and approaches available to you.

Well-trained and creative minds are needed to tackle the increasing incidences of allergies and autoimmune disease, as well as emerging infections such as Ebola and MRSA. Knowledge of the immune system has benefits for other areas of medicine as well, such as in the development of personalised medicine to treat cancer or chronic inflammatory diseases. This programme will give you a firm foundation in the field of infection and immunity (I&I) and covers a variety of topics such as fundamental and clinical immunology, vaccines, immunotherapy, mechanisms of infectious diseases, molecular epidemiology of infections, virulence factors in microorganisms, and resistance to treatment. As a Master’s student of I&I, you will study molecular, cellular, and clinical aspects of pathogens and immune responses. You will also work in a lively research environment during your six to nine month internship, during which you will gain hands-on experience of biomedical research. We believe that understanding both pathogens and host reactions provides deeper insight into the mechanisms of illness, so you will complete internships in both infection and immunity. You will also take theory courses and seminars, as well as master classes led by specialists in the field. The annual scientific symposium is a particular highlight. This symposium is organised by Master’s students and features talks by international experts and poster presentations by second year Master’s I&I students on their own areas of research. PROGRAMME OBJECTIVE This Master’s programme is aimed at highly motivated candidates with strong backgrounds in biomedical sciences who want to work in the field of infection and immunity. As a graduate of this programme, you will have the multidisciplinary skills and knowledge needed to undertake research that will help prevent, diagnose, and treat infectious diseases and immune disorders.

MSc Cancer and Stem Cell Biology

Utrecht University
Campus Full time 2 years September 2017 Netherlands Utrecht

Our Master’s in Cancer and Stem Cell Biology combines research in three areas: oncology, molecular developmental biology, and genetics. The programme will guide you through the mysteries of embryonic growth, stem cells, signalling, gene regulation, evolution, and development as they relate to health and disease. [+]

CELL-TO-CELL SIGNALLING IN DEVELOPMENT AND DISEASE Our Master’s in Cancer and Stem Cell Biology combines research in three areas: oncology, molecular developmental biology, and genetics. The programme will guide you through the mysteries of embryonic growth, stem cells, signalling, gene regulation, evolution, and development as they relate to health and disease. Fundamental developmental processes Given that fundamental developmental processes are so often impacted by disease, an understanding of these processes is vital to the better understanding of disease treatment and prevention. Adult physiology is regulated by developmental genes and mechanisms which, if deregulated, may result in pathological conditions. Although our understanding of the human genome and proteome is rapidly increasing, knowledge about the regulatory processes governing our bodies is lacking. This is the work you will be focussing on as a student on our degree programme – and, quite possibly, in your future career. Techniques During your Master’s degree programme in Cancer, Stem Cells and Developmental Biology, you will use the most sophisticated and modern techniques in genomics, proteomics, and bioinformatics to conduct your research and solve complex questions about the regulation of gene expression, transcriptional regulation, protein structure and function, and signal transduction cascades. Programme objective This Master’s programme will train you to use the growing number of information technologies and methodologies involved in assessing biomedical systems and processes. Taking your own scientific discipline as the point of departure, you will be trained in how to approach multidisciplinary problems effectively and efficiently. The programme also aims to train you in how to work as an independent researcher at a university or other research institution and attracts a highly talented cohort of students from both the Netherlands and abroad. Why study Cancer and Stem Cell Biology at Utrecht University?
