Genetics and Molecular Biosciences | Master's programme

How are the building blocks of life arranged?

How do genes regulate the development and functioning of cells, tissues and organisms? How do molecules, cells and tissues function and communicate with each other, and how are their functions studied? 

Studying these questions is crucial for understanding molecular and cellular mechanisms, whose disruption can contribute to the onset and progression of various diseases.

These are also key issues studied in the Master's Programme in Genetics and Molecular Biosciences. You will acquire knowledge and skills in modern genetics and molecular biosciences. You can specialise in Biochemistry and Structural Biology, Cell and Developmental Biology, Genetics and Genomics or Molecular Analytical Health Biosciences.
