Course content


This programme focuses on interdisciplinary research in the field of innovation and usage of drugs, for example vaccines, gene therapeutics, medical nutrition and antibodies.

Typical research questions addressed in the field of Drug Innovation include:
* How do we make new drugs against resistant microorganisms?
* Which proteins can we target for personalized cancer medicine?
* Can we differentiate stem cells by means of proteomics?
* How can we imprint the immune system to become tolerant?
* What is the connection between gut microbes and brains disease?
* Can we deliver proteins and gens to diseased cells, by learning from viruses and bacteria?
* How can we innovate and speed up the regulatory process of weighing benefit and risk?
* Which biomarkers predict for quality adjusted life years?

As a graduate you will be eligible for many PhD programmes and be able to contribute to drug innovation within research institutes, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies or health care organisations.

Our programme offers a diverse suite of elective courses. This means you can concentrate on the topics of most interest to you.
