In this selective two-year master programme, research-minded students are trained to become the next generation of successful scientists in academia and private section environments. Students will be challenged with exciting cutting-edge research and methodologies and will learn how to critically read the literature, design novel research questions, translate hypotheses into testable research plans, and write scientific essays.

As a student you can focus on your interests and ambitions by participating in one of the following specializations after the first semester:

  • Oncology
  • Neuroscience
  • Infection and Immunity
  • Nutrition and Metabolism
  • Systems Medicine
  • Drug Innovation

Embedded in both the University Medical Center Groningen and the Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy, MMIT offers excellent facilities for (pharmaco)genomics, proteomics and in vivo(animal) and in vitro(cell) imaging. This direct interplay of the clinical, medical, and pharmaceutical sciences is what makes MMIT unique as well as the possibility to choose a specialization after the first semester. At the end of the second year, you will write and defend your own research proposal.

Students are encouraged to perform their second research proposal abroad, further enhancing their international experience although this is not compulsory. Previously students have done this at:

  • Children's Hospital Boston
  • Harvard Stem Cell Institute
  • Institute of Pharmaceutical Science, King's College London
  • J.W. Goethe University Hospital, Frankfurt am Main
  • KU Leuven
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
  • University Hospital Freiburg
  • University of Cambridge
  • University of Colorado
  • University of Oxford
