In the HAN Biomedical Research exchange course biological processes that contribute to cancer play a central role. The research question objectives come from various scientific institutions.

In this course, different model systems (e.g. cultured cells and the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans) are used to study tumor development.

In the framework of the biodiscovery chain, the emphasis of this course lies on the discovery and analysis of molecules and processes that play a role in the development of cancer.

To familiarise the students with the international work field, they will work with two assignments from international clients.


  • Molecular Biology
  • Cancer Biology
  • Cell Biology
  • Developmental Biology
  • Molecular pathogenesis
  • Molecular technologies

After completing this course, you will be able to perform experiments and evaluate the effectiveness and benefit of basic scientific research in the field of biomedical research.


  • Design      
  • Experimenting
  • Analyzing results
  • Management and administration
  • Reporting / Presentation
  • Planning and project-based work
  • Teamwork
  • Guiding/Supervising
  • Professional development

For whom?
Relevant to undergraduate Biology lab students (Laboratory Technician Training) who are interested in Biomedical Research.

Students who choose Biomedical Research as part of their major have priority. In case of a large number of applications for the minor there might be an interview.  

Admission requirements
You must have at least 2 years lab experience in higher vocational education in Biology and be able to display sufficient knowledge, skills and aptitude in the areas of Cell Biology, DNA, RNA and protein.
