Infection & Immunity

Master of Science in Infection and Immunity (I&I)

Recent developments in (bio)medical technologies provide novel tools to gain in-depth knowledge of the fundamental mechanisms of infectious and immune diseases. The goal of the Research Master „Infection & Immunity‟ programme is to train excellent and motivated students integrating basic and clinical biomedical sciences in the field of Infection & Immune Diseases. Research themes will mainly focus on host-microbe interplay with an international outlook and build on the excellent track record of the research groups concerned. Translational research is the hallmark of Erasmus MC. Its quality relies on strong communication between clinicians and basic scientists. With this research master programme Erasmus MC will invest in a new generation of translational scientists that will strengthen and improve Erasmus MC research.
