Protein Science - Master Programme
Understanding proteins is central to understanding and solving both medical and biotechnological problems on the molecular level. This programme explores the molecular structures and functional mechanisms of a large number of proteins. Graduates from the programme will master methods of cloning, expression and purification of proteins, and a number of specialised techniques for analysing proteins. They will also be able to use and understand primary scientific publications, and have the ability to independently plan, carry out and critically evaluate experiments.
In the first year students follow advanced courses in biochemistry, biophysics and molecular biology. In the second year, they choose one or two projects in the field of protein science, which can be carried out at the University or in a company with a relevant research profile. Participation in seminar series, carrier training and development of other general skills is also encouraged during the second year of studies.
Graduates from the programme are highly skilled in conducting research and development, and are well prepared both for work in the biomedical/biotechnical industries and for commencing PhD studies.
