The Master's in Cancer and Stem Cell Biology guides you in exploring the mysteries of embryonic growth, stem cells, evolution and development in relation to health and disease.This Master's programme combines research in the fields of oncology,molecular developmental biology and genetics in animals and humans. During the major (9 months) and minor (6 months) research projects on topics of your own choice, you learn sophisticated modern techniques of genomics, proteomics and bioinformatics. It is possible to complete the minor research project in a laboratory of your choice abroad. During the two year research programme, you are required to take 10 weeks of theoretical courses in the areas grouped in five broad subject areas. You may choose your favourite courses from the list of courses organized by our programme, as well as by other programmes and institutes. Moreover, you are required to attend seminars that present research covering the full range of topics related to biomedical and life sciences.
A final Master's thesis, based on literature research on a relevant topic, completes your programme. It should present a clear overview of recent literature on the topic of interest and demonstrate your ability to critically evaluate hypotheses and results, present your own views and draw conclusions that may lead to the formulation of new research goals.This Masterprogramme combines research in the fields of oncology,molecular developmental biology and genetics in animals and humans.
