NUTRIM Master's Education
NUTRIM contributes education and research expertise to the following Master’s programmes:
Focuses on state of the art methodology and the skills that enable researchers to unravel the molecular mechanisms in health and disease, meeting a growing demand for highly specialised professionals in a range of life science fields. The programme is offered in a cooperation between Maastricht University, the Netherlands, and Hasselt University in Diepenbeek, Belgium, together referred to as transnational University Limburg (tUL).
Health Food Innovation Management
