Molecular life sciences aims to understand the structure, function and regulation of biological systems at molecular, cell and organism levels. The subject is broad and many different fields interact.
Important parts of industry and society require deep knowledge within molecular life sciences, from biomedical research and pharmaceuticals development to the effect of the environment on biological systems, quality assurance of foodstuffs, and nutritional science. This programme is also, naturally, highly appropriate for students who plan to carry out research in the exciting field of molecular life sciences.
This Master’s programme offers a broad education at the front line of research in molecular life sciences. The programme is highly flexible and can be tailored for a number of directions, selecting from a wide selection of courses within cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, microbiology, developmental biology, molecular physiology, and immunology.
You will also carry out a degree project at one of the departments collaborating in the programme: Molecular Biology and Functional Genomics, Genetics, Microbiology and Toxicology, Botany, and Cell Biology, Developmental Biology, Immunology and Physiology at the Wenner-Gren Institute.
