Developmental Biology

Bachelor thesis and research project

Students of the Biology, MLS and MBLS bachelor programmes are welcome to perform their BSc thesis & research project in the Developmental Biology division. We do ask that you have participated in our level 3 course 'Developmental Biology and Genetics' (B-B3OBG05). This course teaches basic skills in handling C. elegans, which the research project builds upon.

The research projects are organized in period 4. In small groups of students, you will perform theoretical assignments and experiments supervised by one or more of the researchers of our groups. Individually, you will write a short report on your research project, and of course your thesis itself. The topic of the research project is shared by all students, while the topic of your thesis is determined together with your supervisor. The two topics do not have to be the same (after all, there are many more topics within the field of Developmental Biology than we can offer in the lab).

If you would like to do your BSc research project and thesis in our group in period 4, please contact with the following information:

  • Name and student number
  • The name of the study your are enrolled in (Biology/MLS/MBLS)
  • The studypaths you follow, and the N2 and N3 courses relevant to your research project

After you application we will let you know if you qualify and if there is space. At the end of period 3 we will contact you with further details of the program.

If you would like to write a thesis in periods 1–3, you may contact the individual group leaders directly. Their email addresses are listed on the members page.
