Research Master's programme in Molecular Mechanisms of Disease Radboud University
What will you learn?
You will understand disturbances in the cellular process that lead to serious disorders, such as metabolism and immune disease, heart and circulation problems, cancer, and age-related diseases. At Radboud, you have the opportunity to choose your own educational path and specialise in your specific field-of-interest.
As a student in the Research Master’s programme Molecular Mechanisms of Disease, you will find yourself in a dynamic research environment – one in which every new theoretical insight may be the key to a new medicine or better diagnosis and treatment.
Education is closely linked to NCMLS's research programme. This research institute engages in a continual exchange of knowledge and expertise between clinic and research laboratory. This is possible thanks to close cooperation with the nearby University Medical Centre.
The scientists in this internationally recognised institute are experts in the following fields, in one of which you will specialise in your Master's programme:
- Infection, immunity and tissue repair (in diseases such as AIDS and malaria)
- Metabolism, transport and motion (in diseases such as diabetes)
- Cell growth and differentiation (in diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer)
Graduates could work as researchers in a number of organizations related to the biomedical field.
This Master’s programme gives you the qualifications you need to enter an international PhD programme. About 90% of our graduates go on to do a PhD in Nijmegen or elsewhere in the world. Within our own research organisation, we have vacancies every year.
