Why study Adaptive Organisms in Nijmegen?

Knowledge about stress adaptation is crucial for our society. Think of animal well-being, nature conservation, agriculture and biotechnology. The Master's specialisation in Adaptive Organisms is a challenging research-orientated programme that covers the fundamental processes involved in stress responses of plants, micro-organisms and animals. At Radboud University, we connect fundamental research to these real life situations, by collaborating with governmental organisations, NGOs and biotech companies.
