What do zebra fish have in common with a new osteoporosis medicine? Everything! As a biologist or medical biologist you will try to solve problems in the fields of genetics, cell biology, neuroscience and cognition, environment, and climate. In this Bachelor you will learn everything about microbiology, evolution and molecular biology. In the lab and the green house you study the underground life of plants. You investigate brain activity with MRI scanners. With microscopes you will look at the life at the level of cells. Do you want to understand the living world around you? Discover Biology and Medical Biology in Nijmegen!

What is this study about?

The Bachelor’s in Biology and Medical Biology you will become expert in the field of biology, in a broad sense. You might know the topics from high school. That knowledge is deepened in this programme. Students follow lectures and do research projects on plants, animals, micro-organisms, ecosystems, biochemistry, and genetics. You will discover the link between biology and other fields of science like math, chemistry and physics. Finally, you will learn how to apply your knowledge, for example in sustainable agriculture, managing pollution, and treating hereditary diseases or brain disorders.
