About

The Master in Biochemistry and Molecular and Cell Biology from Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) develops the knowledge necessary for an experimental approach to any question relating to the structure, functioning and exploitation for biotechnological purposes of living cells and their molecular components.

Overview

It forms

  • biochemists, capable of understanding the structure, functioning and evolution of macromolecules that form the basis of the structure, functioning and programming of living organisms;
  • Molecular and cellular biologists who understand how cells interact with each other, how they grow, adapt, differentiate and die.

Your future job

By touching the very essence of life, biology is the cornerstone of many scientific disciplines: analysis of genetic information, genome sequencing, biotechnology, etc.

Along with chemistry, it contributes to the design of new products. In interaction with physics, it generates new methods for the detection of diseased cells, for example cancer cells.

Our graduates exercise their skills in scientific, fundamental or applied research in research institutes or private laboratories, in expertise and resource management in the private or public sector, in education, training and communication.

Your programme

The Master in Biochemistry and Molecular and Cell Biology from Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) offers you:
