Increased molecular knowledge of the mechanisms of processes in the cell can lead to better medicines or new methods for combating diseases. Our MSc students in Life Science and Technology (LST) specifically learn to understand the molecular and structural chemical and biological aspects of disease-related processes and to apply chemical and biotechnological tools to the treatment of diseases. The programme offers four specialisations and gives students a great deal of freedom in composing their tailored study programme. The molecular insight of our MSc LST students is highly appreciated by research groups in institutes such as LUMC and ErasmusMC as well as in research institutes abroad. 

If you are interested in life science and you are looking for a programme with ample of opportunities to assemble your own study path, our Life Science and Technology programme is the right choice. The programme addresses societal problems on a molecular and cellular level. You can also choose a specialisation in which you combine research in Life Science and Technology with training in business, communication or education.
