EXPLORE THE INTERSECTION OF BASIC AND CLINICAL RESEARCH

Biology of Disease positions you at the cutting edge of basic and clinical science, in particular in the cardiovascular research field. You study disease mechanisms in the broadest sense, and learn to conduct (cardiovascular) disease-related translational research in cooperation with clinical and pre-clinical staff.

Learn to translate a disease into a scientifically sound experiment or model or the other way around. Expand your knowledge concerning the disease or build bridges towards therapeutic leads by studying underlying mechanisms of the disease. Our various research projects focus on different subjects and diseases, allowing you to gain experience in multiple labs.

BECOME AN EXPERT OF CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES

We offer the option to put additional focus on cardiovascular diseases by following our cardiovascular track. It’s an excellent preparation to flow smoothly towards the PhD programme Cardiovascular Research.

WHY YOU SHOULD STUDY BIOLOGY OF DISEASE AT UTRECHT UNIVERSITY

  • Compared to other Master’s programmes in (cardiovascular) disease mechanisms in the Netherlands, our programme in Utrecht allows you to become an expert in the cardiovascular research field.
  • It gives you the opportunity to compose a personalised programme of multiple clinical specialties within disease biology.
  • Carry out two hands-on research projects at research groups and do your minor research project abroad to gain additional skills and an international perspective on your chosen specialisation.
  • Benefit from a solid mentoring system. Discuss your study progress with the Programme Coordinator and work under the supervision of a PhD student or post-doc from amongst our enthusiastic and international staff.

Tracks

CARDIOVASCULAR TRACK

Cardiovascular diseases are still one of the leading causes of mortality and disease within our society and deserve special attention within the Master’s programme Biology of Disease. The Cardiovascular track gives you the opportunity to focus on cardiovascular diseases, without losing the broad biomedical perspective. By following this track, at least 75 EC should be dedicated to a cardiovascular related topic (major research project, courses, and writing assignment), but you are also encouraged to enlarge your knowledge within other disease-fields, searching for new insights that might also be valuable for the cardiovascular research field. For this you can use the minor and the electives.

This track is intended for students who want to become specialist in cardiovascular research and is an excellent preparation to flow smoothly towards the PhD programme Cardiovascular Research.

On completing the Master’s programme including the Cardiovascular track, the track will officially be registered on your International Diploma Supplement.

BIOLOGY OF DISEASE TRACK

This track offers the opportunity to focus on more than one clinical specialization, enabling students to conduct research projects on different subjects and diseases in various pre-clinical and clinical labs.
