Minor Biomolecular and Neurosciences


Over the last three decades neuroscience has become a truly integrative science, from the molecule to the systems level and beyond, encompassing normal human brain function as well as the biological mechanisms underlying brain diseases.

The aim of the minor Biomolecular & Neurosciences track Neurosciences is to offer the student in-depth knowledge of Bio-molecular Sciences and Neuroscience. The student will gain insight into the latest knowledge of experimental cell biology during the first two courses of the minor (Experimental Cell Biology I and II). Next, students will choose a specific track, either Neuroscience or Biomolecular Sciences.

Courses Neuroscience track:

  • Experimental Cell Biology I
  • Experimental Cell Biology II
  • Molecular principles of brain disorders
  • The Adaptive Brain
  • Neuronal Networks and Behavior

The Neuroscience track of the Minor Biomolecular & Neurosciences is tailored to highly motivated students that plan to pursue a career in Neuroscience. This track is recommended for students who plan to enroll in the Master Neuroscience.

This minor is coordinated by Dr. Ruud Toonen
