The multidisciplinary Master’s Programme Biology of Disease offers the opportunity to qualify in Cardiovascular Research. One can create one’s own personalised programme by choosing to study a second clinical speciality during the minor. Eventually one may choose completely other clinical specialities than cardiovascular.
All five faculties of the Graduate School of Life Sciences – i.e. Medicine, Veterinary Medicine, Biology, Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Sciences – are involved.
The programme is predominantly based within the Utrecht University Medical Centre, with the other participating faculties located nearby on the Uithof University Campus.
Professor Marc Vos: “The theme of my research covers several levels of organisation of the heart: from basic research on the structure-to-function relationship of ion channels and gap junctions in normal and diseased heart to electrical remodelling in the failing heart.”
