Education of Human and Animal Physiology

Human and Animal Physiology is committed to challenging and inspiring teaching for BSc, MSc and PhD students.

We teach students of Wageningen University & Research, but also from other Dutch or international universities. The regular courses of the Human and Animal Physiology Group are linked to the MSc programmes of ‘Animal Sciences’, ‘Biology’ and ‘Nutrition and Health’.

More detailed information about the courses provided by the Human and Animal Physiology Group can be found on the following link: HAP Education. For all Wageningen University & Research courses see the complete Study Handbook.

We offer possibilities to participate directly in physiological studies with humans and animals. Other thesis research focuses on cell studies and in-depth analysis of samples from human and animal studies using a variety of biochemical, molecular biological and histological methods for comprehensive mechanistic and physiological interpretation
