The Master’s specialisation in Toxicology comprises both compulsory and optional elements.
As from September 2015 Toxicology will be combined with the Medicinal Chemistry specialisation and offered as Drug & Target Discovery.
The compulsory components are two research projects, both of which include writing a master’s thesis. The main research project must be within the discipline of Toxicology and the minor research project should preferably be in a different discipline of Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences. Other compulsory components are: a literature study, including writing an essay or thesis, attending two advanced lecture series in disciplines of Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences, participating in the Scientific Conduct course, and attending twenty lectures and colloquia presented by other master’s students in Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences.
The distinguishing feature of the Leiden MSc in Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences is its research-oriented approach. This research orientation in the teaching programme is unique in Europe and enjoys a high international profile.
MSc students write about their study, projects, jobs and everything else that interests them. Read stories of Cynthia, MSc Student Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences.
