Topics that are treated in the courses include; the role proteins play in the cell, protein structure and folding, protein targeting and turnover. An understanding of these topics is fundamental to many professions related to life science, e. g. the pharmaceutical and biotech industries.The program consists of five compulsory courses (60 ECTS in total), optional courses (max. 15 ECTS) and a degree project (45 or 60 ECTS). During the degree project the student is trained in the scientific method, experimental planning and doing independent research.
