Overview

Biomedical scientists try to trace back the cause of diseases which opens up possibilities for prevention and the development of new diagnostic
methods and treatments that do not only reduce the symptoms but really cure the patient. Especially the last aim is very challenging and can only be
obtained by international collaboration between different scientific disciplines working at the crossroads of biomolecules, in vitro and in vivo
preclinical research, clinical trials and patient care.

The master of science in Biomedical Research is aiming to train master students in biomedical research in a strong multidisciplinary environment
at the Brussels Health Campus where biomedical scientists work together with clinicians and colleagues trained in other disciplines such as
pharmaceutical sciences or bio-engineering.

The Brussels Health Campus has an excellent reputation in innovative biomedical research which is reflected by the presence of 10 research
clusters on the campus.

• Biomedical Imaging and Medical Physics
• Cardiovascular Diseases
• Development, Ageing & Pathology
• Diabetes,Transplantation and Pathology
• Liver and Cell Biology and Toxicology
• Neurosciences
• Oncology
• Pharmaceutical Research and Data Technology
• Public Health
• Reproduction – Genetics & Regenerative Medicine

Career opportunities

A master in Biomedical Research offers excellent career opportunities.

In the last 10 years, 56% of our graduates started a PhD track and 30-40% of the students found a job in biotech companies or the pharmaceutical industry. Belgium also offers great job opportunities in biomedical research, as it has the highest number of clinical studies per capita.
