Jakub, MSc in Biology-Biotechnology

Where biology teaches us to understand nature, biotechnology gives us the chance to use it. You are, for example, able to innovatively use biology and biotechnology to develop commercial products such as drugs.

Or you can study how stem cells can be used to prevent diabetes, or how plants and microorganisms can be used to produce cancer drugs.
