The Master’s programme in Medical Biology starts with a fascination towards the human system. It focuses strongly on molecular and cellular life processes at the cutting edge of fundamental biology and medical scientific research. The programme is unique because it is a combination of fundamental research and the translation of its findings into clinical applications. There are five Master´s specialisations: Clinical Biology, Medical Epigenomics, Neuroscience, Science in Society and Science, Management and Innovation.
The educational programme for the Master specialisation Clinical Biology for the Master of Science in Medical Biology is:

The master programme also offers four different main specialisations: the Research specialisation, the Communication specialisation, the Educational specialisation and the Management and Technology specialisation.
Next to your choice for one of the research specialisations you can choose for one of the main specialisations.
This programme provides you with the qualifications you need to start working on your PhD and in the field of communication, business and management or education. Medical biologists often continue their research careers in universities, research institutes, pharmaceutical companies and public health authorities. On graduation, our students quickly take up positions as researchers or analysts in government departments, research organisations and medical or pharmaceutical companies.
