Biomolecular sciences is a very internationally oriented research and business area that profits from a strong multidisciplinary expertise on genetics, microbiology, molecular (cell) biology, structural biology, biochemistry, and systems biology. During this Master’s programme, you will acquire in-depth knowledge and research skills via upper level theoretical and practical training. You will become highly competent in biomolecular sciences, as well as the more applied side, biotechnology. Thus, you will acquire excellent perspectives for an independent career in an academic, medical or industrial research environment, or as a scientific consultant for the public or private sector.

The programme content is organized by the Groningen Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology Institute (GBB) and obviously teaching is closely related to the research performed at this institute. GBB’s research is strongly fundamental and curiosity-driven and contains specializations in the following areas:

This selective Master's degree programme is designed for students primarily aiming for a career in research, and who are able to keep up with the study pace of the cohort that starts in September. Students who would like start during the academic year and/or aim for a career that focuses on the business and policy side of science are referred to our Master’s programme Biology.

Improving enzymes to make them suitable for use in industry (research example)

The group of our Prof. Dr. Marco Fraaije at the University of Groningen is involved in a project called ROBOX co-funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 Programme for Research and Innovation. The ROBOX project brings together leading experts from Europe's top universities together with the biotechnology industry. Cutting edge biotechnology is brought to the next level to eventually replace classical chemical processes with biotechnology using enzymes - nature's most sophisticated machines.
