The Nanobiology programme of TU Delft and Erasmus MC
In Nanobiology, we integrate methods and theories from physics, and molecular biology, using tools from math and computer modelling to further understanding of the molecular basis of life. What you’ll learn in the Nanobiology master has direct applications in research.
Developments in biomedicine, such as studies on human genome variation and the control of stem cells, increasingly require analysis and quantitative description at the fundamental level. Moreover, it is becoming possible to develop artificial biomolecules and nanoparticles with wide applications in research and medicine. The incorporation of new biological building blocks is highly promising in for instance industrial biotechnology and medical science. These advances will reshape many aspects of medical diagnosis and treatment. The rapid advancement of modern biomedical, biophysical and computational technologies promises to provide new tools to gain in depth knowledge of the fundamental molecular and cellular mechanisms controlling health or involved in disease.
