During the Master's degree programme in Biomedical Sciences you will be trained to find answers to these questions. The programme is strongly oriented towards the scientific background of health, disease and preclinical research. You will encounter an interdisciplinary environment of basic scientific research at the faculty of science and engineering and the more medical oriented environment of the university medical centre.

If you have a Bachelor's degree in a relevant biomedical area you can apply for our two-year programme and excel your career as biomedical researcher or biomedical specialist. We offer tracks related to biology of cancer and immune system, biology of food and nutrition, biology of ageing, and neuroscience. In addition, we offer the unique option to create a custom made biomedical programme that meets your ambitions. Examples are programmes dedicated to virology, (epi)genetics, regenerative medicine, big data management, computational biology and many other areas on which the University of Groningen has a world-wide leading position.
