Study programme

Biology of Disease studies disease mechanisms via internships in pre-clinical and clinical research in medical, biomedical, biological, industrial and veterinary labs.


The central theme of the Master’s programme in Biology of Disease is the translation of a clinical problem (disease) into a scientifically secure experiment or model in order to study the underlying mechanism of the disease. Such experiments and models can reveal therapeutic leads. Research questions may relate to all organizational levels of the body.

Cardiovascular track

This multidisciplinary programme offers the opportunity to qualify in Cardiovascular Research but one may also focus on more than one clinical speciality.
