Programme duration: 2 years (4 semesters)

Credits: 120 ECTS credits

Programme start: Autumn semesters

Programme overview
Understanding proteins is central to understanding and solving both medical and biochemistry related 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, protein chemistry and molecular biophysics. In the second year, they choose Master’s degree project or projects in the fields mentioned above, which can be carried out at the University or in a company with a relevant research profile.

Career prospects
Graduates from the programme are highly skilled in conducting research and development and are well prepared both for work in the fields of biochemistry and protein science and for PhD studies.
