Essential research

The development of large-scale influenza vaccinations, research on famous murder cases or purification of wastewater processes: nowadays we see elements of Biotechnology all around us. At Van Hall Larenstein you can specialise in topics regarding life sciences and technological developments, which are always related to subjects like cell biology, DNA and medical or forensic research laboratories.

Soon you'll be dealing with matters of life and death, biochemistry of viruses, computer viruses and information technology, computer chips and DNA, crime scene investigation, genetic modification, stem cell research, database research, nanotechnology and security issues. Biotechnology really is an exciting and innovative field of study. If you want to work in this field of study, Leeuwarden is the place to be, because this biotechnology programme in Leeuwarden is the only one of its kind in the Netherlands.
