In the Master's specialisation Chemistry of Life you will focus on complex molecular systems in a biological context; using chemistry to understand life at the molecular level and interact with it.

In this specialisation, you will learn how cells work from a chemist’s perspective and become an expert in the chemistry of all biologically relevant molecules. The first step is to understand how cells work: which processes are essential to the functioning of a cell? Which proteins are involved? And what is the relation between their structure and functioning? Next, you can start to modify the working of the cell, addressing challenging problems, such as wound healing and drug delivery.

With this comprehensive theoretical basis in chemical biology and hands-on experience in a lab, you'll make an excellent candidate for an academic career. If you fancy a job outside of academia, you can also apply your background in a pharmaceutical company, or any other health oriented institution. We encourage you to explore your dream job during a second internship, which is a perfect stepping stone to your future career.
