The Maastricht University is a general institution of scientific schooling and research, applying the concepts of Problem-Based Learning (PBL) in all educational programmes. Students are typically working in small groups, actively discussing problems and applying newly acquired knowledge in practical situations.
Our department is a major contributor to the undergraduate programmes on Biomedical Sciences and numerous other courses and programmes in the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences (FHML), including the Health Sciences programme, European Public Health as well as the Medical curriculum. Staff members have coordinating and active teaching roles in the master programmes of Molecular Life Sciences and guide students during their junior and senior internships, either within our department or externally. All relevant themes of our research activities within in the School of Oncology & Developmental Biology (GROW) are covered in our internship programme, including: Human (cancer) Risk Assessment, Predictive Toxicology, Food and Chemical Safety, Molecular Epidemiology and Prevention. Additionally, the Department is involved in various postgraduate educational programmes in the field of Toxicology, Molecular Epidemiology and Environmental Health, for national and international audiences.
