Working at the interface of Chemistry, Biology and Medical Sciences, the programme explore the basic principles of molecules and cells as well their role in health and disease. Translating the scientific topics into medical implications at the University Medical Centre (UMC).
Two internships have to be conducted, a specialisation must be chosen with a related research group. Two internships (each lasting eight months and worth 45 EC) to be performed in different departments and each consisting of practical research and a written report (36 EC), a theoretical component (3 EC) and a literature thesis (6 EC). Internships can be carried out at the university, as well as other Dutch universities or companies or abroad. They will then be supervised by a personal tutor from the Radboud group.
The programme is closely associated with two institutes that have an excellent international reputation: the Institute of Molecules and Materials and the Nijmegen Centre for Molecular Life Sciences. You will enter a dynamic research environment, work with top scientists, learn about the latest developments in your discipline and conduct research in state-of-the-art laboratories. Thanks to cooperation with the neighbouring University Medical Centre, there is continuous exchange between Lab and Clinic.
A completed Bachelor's degree in Molecular Life Sciences or related area. Fluency in English, both written and spoken is required. Non-native speakers of English without a Dutch Bachelor’s degree or VWO diploma need a proof of English proficiency.
