    Msc Biochemistry

    Program

    As a Master student in Biochemistry, you will follow either of two specializations:
    Molecular Life Sciences or Molecular Oncology


    Molecular Life Sciences

    This program focuses on the structure and function of the molecules of life.
    By selecting from different modules in the sub-areas of "Structural and Functional Biochemistry" and "Molecular and Medical Cell Biology", you can broaden and perfect your knowledge from your bachelor studies, following your interests in specific subject areas.
