Explore the influence of our genetic code on behaviour and health

Genes in Behaviour and Health (Research)

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.

The Genes in Behaviour and Health Research Master’s programme is unique in the Netherlands, and is one of the few programmes worldwide to offer such a comprehensive curriculum with behaviour and molecular genetics. It is taught entirely in English by internationally renowned experts who are active researchers themselves. They regularly publish in leading international journals, and are actively involved in large international collaborations.

  • There are obvious and clear observable differences in health and wellbeing from one person to the next. According to the latest studies, such differences are found to be partly linked to genetic differences between people.
