Master's Molecular Life Sciences

​By combining chemistry, physics, and biology, groundbreaking fundamental research is performed in the life sciences. With this mindset, the programme Molecular Life Sciences focuses on processes from the atomic up to the cellular scale. Our students work on a large range of topics, for example the tracking of Cas proteins to quantify the functioning of CRISPR-Cas in vivo, production of self-healing materials by smart design of polymers, and development of cell specific delivery mechanisms inspired by virus-like particles. The possibilities of this master’s programme are endless, so which fields are you going to explore?
