Biomedical Research - Een palet aan natuurwetenschappelijk onderzoek
In the HAN Biomedical Research exchange course biological processes that contribute to cancer play a central role. The research question objectives come from various scientific institutions.
In this course, different model systems (e.g. cultured cells and the nematode Caenorhabditis Elegans) are used to study tumor development.
In the framework of the biodiscovery chain, the emphasis of this course lies on the discovery and analysis of molecules and processes that play a role in the development of cancer.
To familiarise the students with the international work field, they will work with two assignments from international clients.
- Molecular Biology
- Cell Biology
- Developmental Biology
- Molecular pathogenesis
After completing this course, you will be able to perform experiments and evaluate the effectiveness and benefit of basic scientific research in the field of biomedical research.
- Analyzing results
- Management and administration
- Reporting / Presentation
- Planning and project-based work
- Professional development

Subscribe? Good to know!
For popular minors a draw takes place 3 to 4 weeks after the opening, if there are at that time more subscribers than available places. For the minors with places still available applies until the closing of the subscription period: Once a minor is full, it is closed!
In addition, if the number of subscribers after three weeks is below the norm; this minor may possibly be withdrawn. So if you are interested, sign up immediately!
Subscribe in time!
Note: For HAN students it means that, in case of cancellation of the first choice AFTER the period of decision (this takes about three weeks) they may re-subscribe for the still available minors.
Even then: Once a minor is full, it is closed!
A good overview of the HAN minors can be found in the minors app! The app is accessible via: http://www.minoren-han.nl/
Relevant to undergraduate Biology lab students (Laboratory Technician Training) who are interested in Biomedical Research.
Students who choose Biomedical Research as part of their major have priority. In case of a large number of applications for the minor there might be an interview.
You must have at least 2 years lab experience in higher vocational education in Biology and be able to display sufficient knowledge, skills and aptitude in the areas of Cell Biology, DNA, RNA and protein.
- Knowledge test
- Theme test
- Research report
Timetable details are published before the start of this course. Students are expected to be available Mon-Friday on the Nijmegen campus in order to fully benefit.
- Guest lectures
- Lab practical lessons
- Tutorials: Assignment-based education
This minor is a block minor. The minor is offered twice a year in September and February.
Differentiation exchange course
This is a differentiation exchange course. This means it enables you to develop your professional competences in a different/broader context.
Specialization exchange course
