Master's Molecular Life Sciences

From the discovery of new energy sources to the design of enzymes to produce new medicines, most cutting-edge research requires knowledge of molecular processes. The two-year master's Molecular Life Sciences focuses on the molecular aspects within the fields of nutrition, health, nature and the living environment.
This master's programme consists of four specialisations that are based upon a unique combination of three main disciplines: biology, chemistry and physics. Research is an important part of the programme and there is a wide variety of research subjects to choose from. The combination of chemistry, physics and biology is especially appealing to many employers.
