The departments of Molecular Biology (head: Prof. dr. M. Vermeulen) and Molecular Developmental Biology (Prof. dr. G.J.C. Veenstra) are part of the Faculty of Science of the Radboud University. We are affiliated with and housed at the Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (RIMLS), which is a joint research institute of the Radboud University Medical Centre and Faculty of Science (Radboud University).
Research Both departments have a strong interest in (developmental) gene regulation, with a particular emphasis on (epi)genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and bioinformatics in the context of pluripotency, cell lineage commitment and disease (e.g. cancer and malaria). The departments have their own state-of-the-art sequencing and proteomics facilities as well as a specialized bioinformatics team for in depth data analysis. The departments are very internationally oriented, with several nationalities represented in the departments, and there is extensive collaboration and networking with international partners, often in projects funded by the EC and/or NIH.
Education We are involved in a large range of educational activities at the Faculty of Science (Radboud University) and the Radboud University Medical Centre. We organize the Master specialization Medical Epigenomics and we coordinate a variety of Bachelor and Master courses. A large number of (local, national and international) students perform their Bachelor or Master internship with us. If you are interested in performing a Master internship or a Master literature thesis, please contact the individual staff member of your interest.
