Researchers in the Leiden Institute of Chemistry take a fundamental approach in finding tailored solutions for complex societal problems in human health and environmental issues. The aim of this two-year MSc programme is to train you as an independent scientist and to develop the necessary skills and proficiency to advance your career. The MSc programme in Chemistry offers you access to cutting-edge chemical research.
The research is concentrated in two research areas:
Chemical Biology: you will study fundamental biological and biomedical problems to understand physiological processes at the molecular level and to gather more knowledge on human health and illnesses.
Energy & Sustainability: you will focus on the development of new sources of sustainable energy as well as the development of means to decrease the demand for energy in e.g. industrial processes.
