Program description

MSc Protein Science

Detailed knowledge of proteins and other biomolecules is crucial to our understanding of living processes. By studying protein science, you will be prepared for challenges such as unveiling the molecular causes of disease, designing tools for early and reliable diagnosis, and finding effective therapies.

This master’s program will give you deep insights into mechanisms of protein action, based on complex structural aspects and mediated through binding dynamics, selectivity, and catalytic function. You will also study pharmacology and drug development.

Admission requirements

  • Bachelor's degree with a major in the field of chemistry, chemical biology or equivalent. The Bachelor's degree (equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen) shall be from an internationally recognised university.
  • 10 ECTS credits passed in the field of biochemistry.
  • English corresponding to the level of English in Swedish upper secondary education (English 6/B). This is normally attested by means of an internationally recognised test.(Exemption from Swedish)
