Meet the people

Who better than our students can give you an insight into the Green Life Sciences track? Read what they have to say and meet the researchers that teach the core courses.


PhD student Magdalena Julkowska

'My main reason to choose for the Green Life Sciences Master's programme at the UvA was that it fits perfectly at the interface of molecular biology and ecology. For my first internship I picked the Plant Physiology department where I worked on salt stress signalling in Arabidopsis.'

PhD student Peter van Dam

'We have new greenhouses in which we can control the climate and the light conditions in many independent units. In the photo above, cucumber plants are infected with the pathogenic fungus Fusarium oxysporum. This fungus has a mobile chromosome with virulence genes, which makes it interesting research objects.'

Research institutes

The educational Master's programme in Biological Sciences strongly relies on the expertise of researchers from a range of research institutes, both within and outside the University of Amsterdam.
