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.
What does this master’s program entail?
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.
Starting from day one, and during the whole master programme you are a member of a research team in the LIC. Guided by a personal mentor, the student assembles a tailor-made educational programme for optimal training to become a life sciences professional.
Why study Life Science and Technology at Leiden University?
- You can design your own tailor-made program adjusted to your own interests and ambitions related to Life Sciences, biomedicine and Chemical Biology.
- You have the possibility to be part of research training projects within the Faculty of Science, Leiden University Medical Center, Netherlands Cancer Institute, Erasmus Medical Center or abroad.
- You will receive personal guidance by a mentor of choice, who is a member of one of our international and young research groups.
Life Science and Technology: the right master’s program for you?
If you are interested in Life Science and you are looking for a programme with ample 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 where you combine one year of Life Science and Technology research with one year of training in business, communication or education.
