Course content

Do you want to better understand the underlying mechanisms of life? Would you like to contribute to integrating the scientific fields of biology and mathematics in order to open new perspectives for a deeper insight into biology, development of diseases and possibly the development of new therapies? Then Systems Biology is the right programme for you!

The complexity of biological systems unravelled
Systems biology will become the mainstream in biological sciences this century. It enables the systematic gathering of knowledge at all levels, from molecules to entire ecosystems and its integration into quantitative (computer) models. These models make accurate simulation of biological processes possible. This programme will give you the knowledge and practical skills necessary to unravel the complexity of these systems and use it for academic, industrial and societal progress.

Why study Systems Biology at Maastricht University?
· A curriculum with (elective) courses, a personal portfolio and an academic supervisor.
· A wide spectrum of science courses and skills leading to a multi-disciplinary programme merging biology and biomedical sciences with mathematical modelling (closely related to current and future demands of society).
· A large proportion of student research in the programme (student projects and master thesis).
· Instructional format directed to problem solving and student-centred learning (problem-based learning and research-based learning).
· An international academic community in close contact with local industry.
· Educational setting in small groups meaning high staff/student ratio.
· Staff consisting of top researchers (Vidi and Vici award winners), which brings enormous added value to the scientific quality of the programme.
