Immunology explores the manner in which complex multicellular organisms (primarily mammals) defend themselves against infectious microbes and tumour cells. Immunologists use molecular, structural and cell biology to investigate biological systems at all levels of integration: molecule, subcell, cell, tissue, organism and society.
Research questions range from fundamental biological issues that can be studied in test tubes or animal models, to applied issues such as clinical immunology (vaccine development, immunodeficiency, allergy, autoimmune disease and transplantation) and antibody technology (antibodies as therapeutic agents, diagnostic tools or biotechnological reagents). Bastiaan Leerkotte Studying Immunology at the University of Amsterdam
The Master's programme in Immunology is the product of a collaborative effort by the University of Amsterdam Academic Medical Centre (AMC-UvA) and the Sanquin Blood Supply Foundation. The expertise of these institutions has been combined to form a Master's programme that offers a comprehensive introduction to contemporary immunological research.
What our students say
‘I chose to study at the UvA because it reflects the liberal character which is so typical for Amsterdam. The university offers a framework with sufficient freedom for students to determine their own study path, yet provides enough guidance when needed.'
Immunology is a track of the Master's programme in Biomedical Sciences. The Master's programme in Biomedical Sciences has been legally accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). This means that upon successful completion of the programme, students will receive a legally accredited Master's degree in Biomedical Sciences and the title of Master of Science (MSc).
Applicants for the MSc in Medical Biology must hold a Dutch Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences or Neuroscience.
