The Bionanoscience track (BN) is dedicated to research at the interface between nanoscience, synthetic biology and cell biology. Applying nanotechnology in order to explore and engineer biology is the essence of bionanoscience. This track focuses on the functioning of single cells in all their complexity down to the molecular level. Your Master’s thesis project is carried out in the department of Bionanoscience.
Examples of elective courses related to this track are Biophysics, Cellular Dynamics: Stochasticity and Signalling, Evolution and Engineering of Living Systems, The Origins of Life, Mesoscopic Physics, and Nanotechnology.
The Casimir pre-PhD special programme focuses on preparing and educating MSc students for a PhD position at the Delft Kavli Institute of Nanoscience, the Leiden Institute of Physics (LION) or elsewhere.
