Nature and nurture: how do they interact and correlate? Is health and wellbeing in our genes or is the environment the most important source of differences between people? And can we use DNA to predict our health?
Both twin studies and molecular genetic studies have highlighted the influence of our genetic code on behaviour and health. To adequately understand and influence behaviour and health, we need to increase our knowledge of the way our genes play their part, by themselves and when interacting with our environment.
During the two-year Genes in Behaviour and Health Research Master's programme, you'll delve into these questions in depth to understand the influence of our genetic code on behaviour and health.
We are looking for highly motivated students with an interest in the application of genetics in the behavioural or health sciences, with sufficient background in statistics, biology and psychology.
The general requirements for admission to the Research Master's programme are:
The Admissions Board will evaluate your application, which includes a written motivation and two letters of reference.
