This master’s programme in Protein Science at Linköping University will give you deep insights into mechanisms of protein action, based on complex structural aspects and mediated through binding dynamics, selectivity, and catalytic function. You will also study pharmacology and drug development.
Strong research environment
The education is offered in an internationally successful research environment focusing on the behaviour of misfolded proteins causing neurodegenerative diseases, interaction patterns of cancer-related proteins, and design of antimicrobial peptides for replacement of traditional antibiotics. The courses are taught by teachers who are all active researchers, and are just as eager to share their expertise as they are responsive to student ideas.
Extensive lab skills
You will have access to large instrument facilities, giving you the opportunity to develop extensive lab skills and participate in exciting projects. You will also practice your communication and teamwork abilities. The programme concludes with a degree project carried out in close collaboration with researchers in academia or at a company.
After graduation, your lab experience and thorough understanding of molecular interactions will open career doors to the life science industry and the growing area of biological pharmaceuticals, as well as to hospital laboratories and chemical analysis companies. You will also be qualified to continue your academic education towards a doctoral degree.
