The 120-credit Master in Biomedical Sciences with professional focus in preclinical research centres your learning on the laboratory phase of research into new diseasecausing mechanisms, as well as products and techniques before they are tested on humans.

It is based on a solid grounding in fundamental research (current topics in molecular and cellular biology, cell models, elective classes in deverent research fields etc.), biopharmaceutics (pharmacotherapy, health technology assessment, biosynthetic drugs and pharmacovigilance), biotechnology and therapy (clinical and non-clinical experimental approaches, biomedical engineering).

Your degree programme will boast a significant professional dimension thanks to a large number of visits to companies and hospitals, practical projects and a 5-month placement in a laboratory or company in Belgium or abroad.

You will also have the opportunity to write a thesis based in a research laboratory or a hospital, working on a personal project right through from design to completion (10 months).
