Medical Biology - International Exchange Semester

Does a career in Medical Biology appeal to you? Do you want to learn all about the biological processes that are going on in the human body? This is your chance! Our new International Exchange Programme Medical Biology starts in February (spring semester) in the best student city of the Netherlands: Groningen!

The central theme of this exchange semester is Medical Biology. You will learn in more detail about the cells in the human body and their different biological processes. For instance about the two major pathways for triggering the blood clotting cascade, the pathology of our kidneys and livers and how autoimmunity and vaccines work. These theoretical modules build upon existing knowledge, meaning that some background knowledge on cellular signal transduction pathways and gene expression which regulates cell differentiation should be present. This exchange programme could therefore be considered as a specialization in Medical Biology.

Besides the theoretical modules, there is a large project in the laboratory. These projects differ from student to student, but are strongly linked to ongoing health-related research at the Reserach Centre Biobased Econnomy (KCBBE). Examples are the development of cell-based bioassays, antimicrobial activity of anthocyanins and induction of apoptosis in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells or other tumor cells. As a student, you are involved in the setup and implementation of a small research project in close collaboration with researchers from our institute, companies and research centres involved. 

More information about the modules can be found below.

We offer you
