This Master's programme provides you with insight into the molecular processes underlying health and disease, which form the basis for new therapies of cancer, metabolic and immunological disorders.

All faculty are members of the Radboud University Medical Center (Radboudumc). Their research focuses on the molecular basis of disease-related processes with a direct translation of results into the clinic. All faculty contribute to courses that directly relate to their own research providing you with cutting-edge knowledge. For your two research internships you will have numerous options to contribute to state-of-the-art research. The first internship takes place at the Radboudumc. Many students go abroad for their second internship, using the international network of the Radboudumc researchers. Next to skills directly relating to science, the programme comprises courses on presentation and communication skills. Taken together, the MMD Master's is a perfect preparation for a career in research. Students are selected based on past performance and a personal interview. Team playing is also a condition. You will find yourself among a highly dynamic and international group of students. Each student has an Radboudumc researcher as a personal tutor to provide guidance in the programme. The start of the programme is September 1st of each year. Individual adjustments are possible.
