About the course

What causes disease? What are the (epi)genetic background of disorders? How do microorganisms in the intestine contribute to health and disease? What are the underlying mechanisms of diseases and what novel strategies can be designed to cure disease?

During the Master's degree programme in Biomedical Sciences you will be trained to find answers to these questions. The programme is strongly oriented towards the scientific background of health, disease and pre-clinical research. You will encounter an interdisciplinary environment of basic scientific research at the faculty of science and engineering and the more medical oriented environment of the university medical centre.

For the Groningen Graduate School of Science and Engineering (GSSE) another important task is to provide an optimal training environment for all PhD students in the faculty. To this end, the GSSE organises courses in 'transferable skills,' coordinates and advertises courses offered by other graduate schools and research schools, provides practical information for PhD students, organises meetings and other networking activities, and provides a forum for discussion.

All educational activities at the faculty are facilitated and supported by the Educational Support Centre (ESC).

Research

Research at the Faculty of Science and Engineering (FSE) is done in a number of research institutes. Researchers and research groups also participate in different international, national and local research institutes.
