On the one hand, you study processes which are relevant in diagnosing diseases and processes that give rise to diseases. On the other hand, the production process of a vaccine or drug itself will be studied.
You will take one year of courses, some compulsory and others optional. In the second year of the MSc you will perform two research projects: a major thesis at Wageningen University and a second research project or internship inside or outside Wageningen.
Due to extended cooperations we also offer the possibility to perform the second year at the Medical Faculty of Erasmus University in Rotterdam.
Thesis research can be done in fields such as:
BPE33803 Animal Cell Biotechnology
BPE34306 Metabolic Engineering
BPE35803 Marine Biotechnology
HAP31806 Molecular Regulation of Health and Disease
HNH23306 Pharmacology and Nutrition
HNH34806 Applied Nutrigenomics
MIB30303 Research Methods Microbiology
MIB30806 Applied Molecular Microbiology
MIB32303 Human Microbiome
MOB30306 Control of Cellular Processes and Differentiation
MOB31303 Molecular Development
SSB20306 Bioinformation Technology
