This Master is an Interuniversity Programme on Molecular Biology (IPMB), jointly organized by the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel and the Universiteit Antwerpen, and selected and supported by the Flemish Interuniversity Council (VLIR-UOS) as one of its international course programmes. 
Molecular biology is the discipline within the life sciences that aims at understanding the molecular basis of life in health and disease.
Obviously, it is a multidisciplinary subject, dealing with the structure and function of molecules as well as their interplay to create the phenomenon life.
Research in molecular biology not only intends to produce knowledge, but also offers new opportunities for the development of diagnostic tools, new strategies to improve agricultural production and improve the health status of man and livestock.
Although originally designed to meet the needs of students from developing countries, the programme offers an exquisite opportunity for those who seek re-orientation to enter the fascinating world of molecular biology. Also Erasmus-Socrates students who visit the organizing universities for one or two semesters are most welcome to attend classes and acquire laboratory skills.

The programme aims at strengthening and updating the theoretical and practical skills of young scientists from developing countries who are already involved in either human or animal health care, or agricultural research. The goal of the programme is not just to transfer technology but rather to train participants to acquire the ability to cope with a wide range of scientific problems and challenges and to provide them with the intellectual tools needed to develop a molecular biological approach to tackle the problems their country is facing.
Most important topics in molecular biology in first year
In view of the diversity of the background of the students, the first year consists of in depth courses that cover the most important topics in molecular biology and bring the students to the level of knowledge required to successfully follow the advanced and specialization courses of the second year.
During intensive laboratory training, students are well prepared to embark for the preparation of their dissertation in the second year.
Advanced courses in second year
In the second year, all students take four advanced courses followed by three specialization courses in either the field of human health, animal production or plant production.
Also much time is devoted to the preparation and writing of the dissertation, which is an original research work made under the supervision of a promoter and defended in public.

Beroepsbeschrijving- en uitwegen
 

IPMD graduates find employment in universities, hospitals, private and governmental research laboratories, patenting bureaus, as lecturers, consultants, advisors to policy makers, among other careers.
Many graduates go on to begin PhD programmes in Belgium or abroad.
Students from developing countries may apply for a ‘sandwich’ PhD scholarship from the VLIR-UDC.
Flemish students may apply for a PhD scholarship from the VLIR-UDC for research projects on topics relevant to development.
