About

The Dutch Master's Selection Guide (Keuzegids Masters 2017) ranked this program as the best in the field of Chemistry in the Netherlands.

Drug Innovation is about:

developing new drugs to combat drug-resistant microorganisms using gene or protein technologies to create therapies targeted at individual patients finding a way to imprint the immune system to increase tolerance exploring the relationship between gut microbes and brain disease learning how to use proteomics to study stem cell development reducing the side effects of treatment by finding new ways to deliver drugs directly into the tumor updating and speeding up the drug regulatory process

The Master’s in Drug Innovation program focuses on diagnostics and the improvement and management of small molecule and biomolecular drugs. Drug innovation covers many topics such as the development of new vaccines and the study of antibodies, gene therapeutics, and medical nutrition. Once developed, a new drug then needs to go through approval, which raises a whole new set of challenges, for example, the establishment of new methods and criteria for evaluating the quality, efficacy, safety, and performance of the drug....
