By combining chemistry, physics, and biology, groundbreaking fundamental research is performed in the life sciences. With this mindset, the programme Molecular Life Sciences focuses on processes from the atomic up to the cellular scale. Our students work on a large range of topics, for example the tracking of Cas proteins to quantify the functioning of CRISPR-Cas in vivo, production of self-healing materials by smart design of polymers, and development of cell specific delivery mechanisms inspired by virus-like particles.
Why this programme?
- Cutting-edge research in topics ranging from bio-nanotechnology to the role of SOSEKI proteins in the cell polarity of plants.
- Research is an important part of the programme.
- Building bridges between biology, chemistry and physics.
