About

At Biomedical Sciences - Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism from Maastricht University you’ll learn how new scientific knowledge is obtained in basic and applied research areas, and how these insights can be used to benefit patients. 

Overview

Biomedical Sciences - Nutrition, Physical Activity and Metabolism from Maastricht University aims to understand the physiology and the mechanisms underlying these derailments to provide the basis for the ultimate design and optimisation of preventive and therapeutic nutritional and life-style interventions that improve metabolic health and alleviate the diseased state.

Careers

To halt the progressive increase in prevalence of disorders that find common ground in disturbed metabolism, we need highly skilled people to identify potentially successful targets and routes for intervention via scientific research. This includes research in academia, hospitals and industry (ranging from biomedical and pharmaceutical companies to companies developing wearables to monitor health and physical activity). You can also apply the knowledge acquired in (academic) teaching or in public health settings to provide new scientific background to novel health promotion programmes.
