From molecule to gene, to cell and organ, to individuals and entire populations: in this programme you explore the relationship between human beings and their environment at the molecular level.

What causes disease? How can we prevent it? And if disease is present, how can we treat it? This programme focuses on state of the art methodology and the skills that enable researchers to unravel the molecular mechanisms in health and disease. Your choice of senior research project (year 2) and laboratory reflects your choice of the five BMS specialisations*:
  1. Clinical Molecular Sciences focusing on the genetic, epigenetic, metabolic and environmental causes underlying the disease process.
  2. Cardiovascular Biology and Medicine providing in-depth research training in the cardiovascular system and related diseases.
  3. Neuroscience providing in-depth research into the molecular mechanisms underlying psychological, psychiatric and neurological disorders.
  4. Nutrition and Metabolism emphasising biomedical research and the relationship between diet and metabolism.
  5. Oncology and Developmental Biology focusing on unravelling the mysteries of cancer and human development.

  • NOTE: As of September 2017, these specialisations will be replaced by tracks with a different content. More information follows on our website in February 2017.

This is a two-year programme taught in English.

Waarom aan de Maastricht University?

The programme is offered in partnership between Maastricht University and Hasselt University (Belgium). You participate in ongoing, cross-border research at both campuses, giving you not just hands-on experience but also an international network. Second, you have the intellectual freedom to pursue your own interests (e.g. many elective courses). Moreover, you follow a junior internship in the first year and a 30 to 32-week senior internship (second year) at approved laboratories of your choice.
