Biology: Animal Sciences and Health
The Master specialisation Animal Sciences and Health is a specialisation of the Biology Master and offers a research-oriented education in animal biology with a strong focus on the generation of fundamental scientific knowledge that can lead to the improvement of human health. Important aspects of animal development and the interaction of animals with the environment can be studied at different often integrated levels ranging from the molecular, genetic and cellular levels to the organismal and population levels. A major part of the master training is actively taking part in a running research project within the theme of the specialisation at the Institute Biology Leiden or at other research groups of the Faculty of Science or the at the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC). There are also many possibilities for external projects at other universities or research institutes in the Netherlands or abroad.
Coordinator: Prof. Dr. A.H. Meijer
