STUDY CELL-TO-CELL SIGNALLING IN DEVELOPMENT AND DISEASE

Do you have a clear and specific interest in cancer, stem cells or developmental biology? Join our programme and combine research in oncology, molecular developmental biology and genetics. Discover the mysteries of embryonic growth, stem cells, signalling, gene regulation, evolution, and development as they relate to health and disease.

CONTRIBUTE TO A BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF DISEASE TREATMENT AND PREVENTION

Given that fundamental developmental processes are so often impacted by disease, an understanding of these processes is vital to the better understanding of disease treatment and prevention. Adult physiology is regulated by developmental genes and mechanisms which, if deregulated, may result in pathological conditions.

Become an expert on molecular and cellular aspects of development and disease and create a better understanding of processes underlying cancer and developmental biology. Use techniques and applications of post-genomic research, including single cell and next generation sequencing, proteomics, metabolomics and advanced microscopy techniques.

WHY YOU SHOULD STUDY CANCER, STEM CELLS AND DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY AT UTRECHT UNIVERSITY

  • Study with a unique emphasis on developmental biology, a process with many connections to cancer
  • Carry out two extensive research projects at renowned research groups
  • Collaborate with national and international research institutes, and gain valuable experience at partner institutions all around the world
  • Take courses, seminars and masterclasses led by renowned specialists in the field. The courses are interactive, and challenge you to further improve your writing and presenting skills
  • Focus on fundamental molecular aspects of disease related questions, particularly questions related to cancer and the use of stem cells in regenerative medicine

CANCER, STEM CELLS AND DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY IN UTRECHT

The Graduate School of Life Sciences has links with renowned research institutes in Utrecht, which combine expertise in biology, chemistry, and pharmaceutical sciences with research in the medical and veterinary sciences. This multidisciplinary approach is unique in the Netherlands and has become renowned around the world.

The research groups in the Division of Biomedical Genetics form the Research School for Cancer, Stem Cells and Developmental Biology. These groups are renowned for their work on key issues in the field of developmental biology within a multidisciplinary setting and publish widely in the most prestigious international journals. All groups are equipped with excellent facilities and modern, state-of-the-art laboratories.

GRADUATE SCHOOL OF LIFE SCIENCES

Life Sciences is one of the four strategic themes of Utrecht University and is organised in the Graduate School of Life Sciences (GSLS). The GSLS brings together the research expertise and facilities of the faculties of Science, Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, in cooperation with UMC Utrecht. Research at the GSLS is highly interdisciplinary, because scientific breakthroughs take place where physics, medicine, chemistry and biology interact.
