Mission and vision
It is our mission to select and train excellent students at an early stage of their careers to perform top research in the field of Infection & Immune Diseases covering the complete field of host-microbe interplay and autoimmunity, challenge them to become translational investigators, foster them and commit them to the academic world. Recent developments in (bio)medical technologies provide novel tools to gain in-depth knowledge of the fundamental mechanisms of infectious and immune diseases. Translational research is the hallmark of the Erasmus MC. Its quality relies on strong communication between clinicians and basic scientists. With this research master programme Erasmus MC will invest in a new generation of translational scientists that will strengthen and improve Erasmus MC research.

The main topics of the program are:
  • Immunology: fundamental, organ-specific, transplant immunology, auto-immune diseases, immunodeficiencies
  • Both Virology and Microbiology: basic and advanced, emerging infectious diseases, host-microbe interplay, role of genetic variation in host and microbe, chronic inflammatory diseases
  • Clinical Pharmacology
  • Epidemiology of infectious diseases
  • Animal models
  • Bio safety

The organisation of the program is rather basic. There is a Steering Committee chaired by Prof.dr. Ron Fouchier, who is also scientific director of the Postgraduate School MolMed, a Programme Committee chaired by Dr. Jan Nouwen MD PhD, program director. The managing director is dr. Frank L. van Vliet. The office of the Postgraduate School MolMed supports it.
