This Bachelor's programme combines Chemistry, Biology and Medical Sciences in a challenging programme full of laboratory practice. You will unravel the workings of healthy and diseased cells, gaining fundamental knowledge that is needed for medical innovation. Think of stem cell therapy, personalised medicine or self-healing materials.
Why study Molecular Life Sciences?
- You will receive a sound education with a unique combination of science and medicine, including a wide range of options to choose from.
- The programme is ranked top 100 worldwide in its field (Source: QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019)
- You will receive excellent supervision: next to a student advisor, you will be provided with a mentor who will also answer all of your questions.
- Radboud University enjoys close cooperation with other universities in the Netherlands and abroad, and with knowledge-based institutes and companies.
- You will have access to unique research facilities, for example for microscopy/imaging and genome-wide DNA technologies and for high field magnets and lasers.
What will you learn?
Medical challenges can only be solved with a combined expertise in Chemistry, Biology, Medical Sciences, Informatics, Physics, and Mathematics. As such, Molecular Life Sciences students should have solid backgrounds in chemistry, physics, and mathematics before entering the programme. You will learn how signalling molecules are produced from the DNA and how they are transported through the cell and the body. Moreover, you will be studying the differences between healthy and diseased cells. You will get acquainted with these topics during lectures and seminars, and performing hands-on experiments in the lab.
