The focus in this Master's programme of the University of Amsterdam is on the biochemistry of metabolic disorders and infectious microorganisms. We study why obesity is often linked to diabetes type 2 at a young age. What is the ‘Metabolic Syndrome'? We work on therapies for genetic metabolic disorders. In addition, with the genomes of major pathogenic bacteria, fungi and parasites at hand, researchers at the Swammerdam Institute for Life Sciences, the Faculty of Science and various departments at the Faculty of Medicine are working to combat major communicable diseases such as malaria and HIV as well look at ways to ensure food safety. One question faced is how the molecular physiology influences the way microorganisms interact with their (host) environment? Accreditation and degree
Medical Biochemistry is a track of the Master's programme in Biomedical Sciences. The continuation of the accreditation of this Master's programme has recently been confirmed by a positive assessment from the Accreditation Organisation of The Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). This means that upon successful completion of the programme students will receive a Master's degree in Biomedical Sciences and the title Master of Science (MSc). You can find more information on accreditation and degrees through the links below.
Applicants for the MSc in Medical Biology must hold a Dutch Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Sciences or Neuroscience.
Recipient: University of Amsterdam
