From the characterization of molecular causes of pathology to a generation of new therapeutics to treat diseases, from small molecules and proteins to diseases and medicines. If you are fascinated by the idea of developing new pharmacological therapies, then this is the Master’s programme for you.
In the Master’s programme in Drug Discovery and Safety, you will examine the interaction between molecules and the human body from a range of perspectives: chemical, medical, toxicological, pharmacological and genetic. You will focus on a specialization that suits your specific interests while working in a multidisciplinary environment where you ill be challenged to address key questions about the medicines of the future. Sixty per cent of diseases are still incurable, so there are still a great many challenges for researchers to tackle.
Graduates in Drug Discovery and Safety have excellent employment prospects and can generally expect to earn a good salary. This Master’s programme opens up a whole range of career opportunities. The most obvious ones are in medicinal research, the pharmaceuticals industry and hospital laboratories, but there are also plenty of opportunities within research institutes and government inspection agencies.For more information create your own program brochure on www.vu.nl/en/programmes/international-masters/order-brochures/index.asp.
