Biomolecular Sciences is a two-year scientific program that focuses on the biochemical unity that underlies the biological diversity. Biomolecular Science is a rapidly developing discipline in modern life science.

It stands at the crossroads of chemical, biological, physical and computational sciences and focuses on the molecular understanding of cellular function. Anticipating this evolution, this Master program will focus on the understanding of cellular processes, biological molecules and their interactions.

The two years master is built around 4 subdomains of Biomolecular Sciences:
  • Protein Structure and Function
  • Applied Immunology
  • Advanced Molecular Biology
  • Bioinformatics

The student’s interest and knowledge of a specific subdomain can be deepened through the choice of 4 electives.

The Free University of Brussels Master is conceived as a multidisciplinary and research-oriented program. The program also aims to develop the habits of mind to perform and manage research in a multidisciplinary and international context.

Therefore, our students will also be trained in different aspects of research communication and research management.

The latter will be done in a mandatory module "Research Competences" that consists of:

  • Research Communication and Management
  • Master Thesis in the field of Biomolecular Sciences
