MSc in Biomedical Sciences - Infection and Immunity

The master track “Infection and Immunity” has been designed to integrate the advanced knowledge in two interlinked disciplines. Immunology is the science that investigates how complex multicellular organisms (mostly mammals) defend themselves against infectious diseases. Immunologists investigate biological systems at all levels of integration: molecular, (sub)cellular, tissue, organism and society. The experimental tools address the molecular, structural and cell biological level, incorporating state of the art techniques such as microarrays, deep sequencing, live imaging and multicolor fluorescent flow cytometry.Medical Microbiology studies the pathogenesis, epidemiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of pathogens and infections from the molecular to the global health level. Though the immune system protects against infection, microbes employ a variety of strategies to escape immune responses. Another important topic that will be addressed is the emergence of antimicrobial resistance.... [-]

The track Experimental Internal Medicine is a collaborative effort by the University of Amsterdam (UvA) Faculty of Science and the Academic Medical Centre (AMC). Internationally renowned AMC research groups engaged in modern clinical and translational research have put together challenging courses. These courses provide the participants with a thorough background on modern, state-of-the-art research in the experimental internal medicine. Programme OutlineThe first course is Molecular Biology of the Cell. Students will be given training in the analysis of chemical structures, structure function relationships and innovative, genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics-based measuring systems.The second course is Cardiovascular diseases. The basic and clinical aspects of three large clinical cardiological syndromes will be discussed in detail.  These include: cardiac pump function and heart failure, cardiac excitation and sudden cardiac death, vascular pathology and ischemic heart disease.  Attention will be paid to the most current state of scientific insights in these three areas, the clinical expression of diseases therein, and to the experimental techniques, and animal models to unravel the biological underpinnings of normal and diseased states.The third course is Endocrinology. The endocrinological aspects of three large clinical areas will be discussed in detail.  These include: stress, reproduction & growth, and metabolism.  Attention will be paid to the most current state of endocrinological insights in these areas, clinical expression of diseases therein, and to the experimental techniques, and animal models to unravel the biological underpinnings of normal and diseased states.In both courses the teachers are highly active in the field.  Either as a senior investigator or  a medical doctor or both.The remainder of the programme provides elective courses and major practical training, whereby students carry out research projects. The AMC offers research opportunities in a virtually every specialism, with special emphasis on Internal Medicine.  These include, nephrology, pulmonology, infectious diseases, cardiology, vascular medicine, gastro-intestinal diseases and hepatology. Generally we advise to do the first traineeship at the Science faculty's Swammerdam Institute of Life Sciences (SILS) to get a proper grip on the necessary experimental approaches. Is Experimental Internal Medicine the track for me?The programme is looking for students who:... [-]

Master's Programme - Infection Biology

 

In-depth knowledge of infection biology is needed in work to improve health. There is a growing demand for expertise in this field, particularly in the developing world, where microbial infections are more prevalent, often with devastating consequences.

 

This programme, in collaboration with Uppsala University, focuses on the biological and chemical processes behind the aetiology, epidemiology and evolution of microbial infections, as well as ways of predicting, preventing, tracking and treating infectious diseases. 

 

 

Content

 

First year studies concern the world of microbes and aim to give advanced knowledge of the biological and chemical processes regulating host - pathogen interactions. This knowledge will constitute the basis for more applied topics such as the biology of infectious diseases, how to control infections by antimicrobial therapies and natural immunity and how to understand microbial evolution....
