This programme focuses on interdisciplinary research in the field of innovation and usage of drugs, for example vaccines, gene therapeutics, medical nutrition and antibodies.Typical research questions addressed in the field of Drug Innovation include:
* How do we make new drugs against resistant microorganisms?
* Which proteins can we target for personalized cancer medicine?
* Can we differentiate stem cells by means of proteomics?
* How can we imprint the immune system to become tolerant?
* What is the connection between gut microbes and brains disease?
* Can we deliver proteins and gens to diseased cells, by learning from viruses and bacteria?
* How can we innovate and speed up the regulatory process of weighing benefit and risk?
* Which biomarkers predict for quality adjusted life years?

As a graduate you will be eligible for many PhD programmes and be able to contribute to drug innovation within research institutes, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies or health care organisations.Despite a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms of disease, the number of newly introduced innovative drugs is steadily decreasing. As drugs have proven to be effective and inexpensive weapons against disease in the 20th century (e.g. antibiotics and psychopharmaceuticals), it is important to reverse this worrying trend using innovative techniques.
In this programme you will start with the 'Introduction to Drug Innovation', after which you select at least three courses from the introductory theoretical courses. Upon that you will choose elective courses, attend seminars and do a major and minor research project. The major project is carried out within Utrecht University. The minor project may be carried out in another organisation in the Netherlands or abroad. Your final thesis is based on a literature review of a relevant subject.

As a graduate you will be eligible for many PhD programmes and be able to contribute to drug innovation within research institutes, any of the growing number of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies or health care organisations.
The programme is also offered as a part-time course.Vooropleiding

objectives

This unique programme is intended to train enthusiastic researchers and co-workers how to contribute effectively to drug innovation in research institutes, the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and biotechnology industry, their own start-up companies or administrative positions in world health care.

sustainable strengthening

There will be a specific answer for each graduate, but generally speaking participation in an international high quality Master programme will increase his or her professional knowledge. Since the employer plays an important role in the application procedure, it is expected that the organisation will benefit from the upgrading of its employee.
