Bioanalysis – an interdisciplinary field providing the methodologies to study fundamental questions of life and to cope with life’s challenges in health diagnostics, pharmacy and medical technology. From probing single cells or molecules, providing point-of-care diagnostics to screening for new pharmaceutical drugs: developing novel bioanalytical tools is the basis of it all. The Master of Chemistry with focus on Bioanalysis aims at training a next generation of bioanalytical chemists who will have a broad foundation in chemical knowledge and an in-depth understanding of this interdisciplinary field where the life sciences meet analytical chemistry. Practical courses and research internships prepare the student for their independent Master’s research project, skillful scientific presentations and navigating scientific literature.
We seek students with a background in chemistry, curiosity for the life sciences and enjoyment in problem solving. Successful candidates receive the degree “MSc Chemistry” with a specialization in Bioanalysis. Application requires a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry or equivalent.
