What will I learn?

Biomolecular sciences is a very internationally oriented research and business area that profits from a strong multidisciplinary expertise on genetics, microbiology, molecular (cell) biology, structural biology, biochemistry, and systems biology. During this Master’s programme, you will acquire in-depth knowledge and research skills via upper level theoretical and practical training. You will become highly competent in biomolecular sciences, as well as the more applied side, biotechnology. Thus, you will acquire excellent perspectives for an independent career in an academic, medical or industrial research environment, or as a scientific consultant for the public or private sector.

The programme content is organized by the Groningen Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology Institute (GBB) and obviously teaching is closely related to the research performed at this institute. GBB’s research is strongly fundamental and curiosity-driven and contains specializations in the following areas:

Biotransformation and Biocatalysis

Cell Biochemistry

Chemical Biology

Electron cryo-Microscopy

Membrane Enzymology

Microbial Physiology

Molecular Cell Biology

Molecular Dynamics

Molecular Genetics

Molecular Microbiology

Molecular Systems Biology

Protein Crystallography
