Genes in Behaviour and Health: Research Master

Exploring gene-environment interplay across our lifespan

Genes in Behaviour and Health: Research Master

Due to the Corona crisis, the requirements to enroll in this Master's programme have changed. For an overview of the requirements, we refer to the subsection ‘Corona crisis: from a Bachelor’s to a Master’s.

This Research Master's programme has entry requirements, including a grade point average (GPA) of your Bachelor's or Premaster's programme. We can understand that the corona crisis might have influenced the marks you obtained in the recent months. Are you interested in this programme but are you not sure if you are admissable at this point? Or are you not sure if your GPA is sufficient?Please contact theadmissions committee (International students) or toelatingscommissie.fgb@vu.nl (Dutch students) of the Research Master's programme, they will be very happy to get in touch with you and answer all your questions!

While the 20th century was the century of physics, we have now entered the century of the genome. Twin studies and more recently molecular genetic studies have highlighted the influence of our genetic code on our behaviour and health. To adequately understand and influence behaviour and health, we need to increase our understanding of the way our genes play their part, by itself and in interaction with our environment.

The research master Genes in Behaviour and Health is a two-year full time programme that will equip you with the knowledge and understanding of the relevant research methods to design and carry out high-quality research within the field of behaviour genetics and genetic epidemiology. In choosing this research master you will take the first steps to become part of a new generation of talented researchers capable of contributing to the rapid spread of omics from curative medicine to wider applications in the behavioural and health sciences involving prevention and care.

Opting for the research master’s programme brings you into an inspiring research environment. The Department of Biological Psychology is famous for its Netherlands Twin Register, an unique data repository, containing genetic and environmental information for more than 50,000 twin families, who are followed longitudinally. You will be taught by expert staff members and researchers from other institutes worldwide regularly visit to give lectures and workshops.

We also offer a two-week summer course. The summer course is a good introduction to the research master and a great opportunity for students who are considering to apply to the research master.

Should you need more information, please contact the administration: rm.gbh.fgb@vu.nl.

Introduction to Omics
Lecturers: Dr. Rene Pool and Dr. Rick Jansen
Students are provided with basic background knowledge on the organization and transcriptional regulation of the human genome, and how this forms the cornerstone of the biological pathways that influence behaviour and health. Key techniques in molecular genetics are reviewed.

Gene finding: GWA studies and their follow-up
Lecturers: Dr. Jouke-Jan Hottenga and Dr. Anke Hammerschlag
Students learn the basic computational skills needed to conduct gene finding studies, using the latest techniques applied. They will gain hands-on experience finding genes for psychological traits and learn how to evaluate the importance of their genetic findings using techniques such as GCTA, LD regression, and the application of meta-analyses across multiple gene finding studies.

Behavioural Genetics
Lecturer: Prof. dr. Conor Dolan
Focusing on classical twin studies as well as extended pedigree analyses, students learn to formulate structural equation models in R and OpenMx to investigate the heritability of traits within the area of psychology, behaviour and health and test gene x environment interactions. Input for the analyses will be generated from datasets that have been or are used within the Netherlands Twin Register, providing real-life examples of the route from data to publication.

Epigenomics and Sequencing in Behaviour and Health
Lecturers: Dr. Jenny van Dongen and Prof. dr. Dorret Boomsma
Though our DNA sequence may be relatively fixed, the epigenetic mechanisms that regulate the expression of our genes vary across cell types and are subject to changes during development and in response to external influences This course provides students with the theoretical background and the analytical skills required to analyse and interpret genome-wide epigenomic data in the context of human epigenetic epidemiology research. After this course, students will understand how life circumstances may alter gene expression and lead to individual differences in behaviour and health.

Imaging and Cardiovascular Genetics
Lecturers: Dr. Dennis van ’t Ent and Prof. dr. Eco de Geus
In learning to understand the pathway from genes to health, endophenotypes may play an important role. Here two important phenotypes are highlighted: brain function and autonomic nervous system function and the way these are influenced by genetics. Students learn how variation in brain and autonomic functioning is assessed by experimental techniques like MRI, ECG and impedance cardiography. They get hands-on experience in (1) analysing ECG and impedance data in a twin-family design, and (2) analysing fMRI datasets collected in the context of imaging genetics studies.

Statistical programming in R and python
Lecturer: Prof. dr. Conor Dolan
In this course you will obtain the programming skills to work with large OMICs datasets.

Internship 1
The knowledge, experimental and data-analytical skills you obtained in the first year will be applied at the end of the year in a first internship in which you engage in a research project in close collaboration with an experienced VU supervisor.

Exposome and gene-environment interaction
Lecturer: Dr. Michel Nivard
In this course students learn how to use large population-based information databases (e.g. neighbourhood characteristics, electronic patient files, cancer registration) in the study of human genetics. Combining information available from publicly shared databases may generate new testable hypotheses, but also presents computational challenges (e.g. record linkage with careful attention to privacy/de-identification steps).

Complex Trait Genetics
Lecturers: Prof. dr. Dorret Boomsma and Dr. Jenny van Dongen
In this course the focus is on the theoretical foundation of biometrical and quantitative genetics and the insights needed to understand genetic findings from empirical studies. Our genetic make-up has evolved over thousands of years, leading to large and small individual differences within and between populations. The implications of such genetic variation is discussed.

Personalised Health and Medicine
Lecturers: Dr. Eveline de Zeeuw and Prof. dr. Meike Bartels
Research has shown that an individual’s unique characteristics, genetic profile and environmental factors play a significant role in both disease susceptibility and in the response to treatment. Personalised medicine is a rapidly developing and growing field and aims to predict more accurately an individual’s predisposition to developing a disease, to achieve better diagnoses, earlier (preventive) interventions, targeted and more efficient drug therapies (pharmacogenomics) and customized treatment. This course will focus on the current state of affairs, implications and future prospects of personalised prevention and treatment related to health behaviour, mental health and physical health.

Grant Writing and Science Communication
Lecturers: Prof. dr. Eco de Geus and Dr. Elsje van Bergen
Grant writing has become an essential aspect of academic life. To be able to write a successful grant one needs a good overview of the studies to date on the topic, to identify the gaps in our knowledge that need to be filled and of course the skills and ability to write a good grant proposal. The lecturers (successful applicants themselves) will share their knowledge and will help students write their own grant proposal. Societal importance and impact are essential elements of a grant. This requires the research master students to communicate science results, not only to colleagues but also to the general public. In this course we actively practice science communication through interviews, newspaper articles, websites and social media.

Elective
In addition to these courses, you choose one elective course to extend your study to a specific areas of interest. You may want to focus on psychiatry, clinical psychology, neurodevelopment, brain imaging, or personalised medicine. The course may be one provided within the faculty itself, but may also be chosen from programmes at another faculty at the VU or at another university. 

Internship 2
In a second internship, encompassing period 4 to period 6 of the second year, you will independently conduct a research project, often in an external (inter)national research setting, under shared tutelage of a VU supervisor and an external supervisor. This internship will be completed by writing your Master thesis, according to the submission criteria of a peer-reviewed journal relevant to the topic.

The rapid growth of genetic knowledge and research has led to a great demand for people with the knowledge and skill to link genetics to human behaviour and wellbeing. Young researchers with knowledge on behavioural sciences, statistics, genetic epidemiology, statistical genetics and omics are very much needed in the growing and promising field of genetics. This results in excellent career perspectives. Most graduates from the Research Master Genes in Behaviour and Health will continue to pursue a career in science and undertake a PhD at a university, either in the Netherlands or abroad. Others might get employed as a researcher at a national or international applied research institute. The RM program provides the upcoming academic researcher with the theoretical basis, methodological proficiency and research practice needed to pursue an academic research career. Outside academia, jobs may be found in biotechnology oriented top sectors focused on health or medical technology where graduates can work as consultants, researchers or big data analysists.
Unique study program
The research master Genes in Behaviour and Health is unique in the Netherlands and one of the few programmes worldwide to offer such as comprehensive master program in behaviour genetics, taught by internationally known experts who are active researches themselves. Teaching takes place in small groups, providing ample opportunities for interaction with the staff.

Active research environment
The teaching staff regularly publishes in leading international journals, and are actively involved in large international collaborations. Student internships are often an integral part of active academic projects and frequently contribute to a publication.

International orientation
All courses are taught in English and the programme aims to prepare students for an international (academic) career. Teaching staff is strongly internationally orientated and the Department regularly welcomes researchers from around the world who provide lectures and workshops, which can be attended by students. Students are encouraged to take one of their internships abroad.

Programme director of the Research Master Genes in Behaviour and Health

Bartels

Biography: I am a University Research Chair Professor in Genetics and Well-being at the Department of Biological Psychology & the Netherlands Twin Register, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Over the course of my PhD, I increasingly realized that the majority of individuals remain free of psychopathology throughout their life. Ever since then I broadened focus and became interested in well-being. I conduct and supervise several research projects to gain insight into the underlying sources of variation on well-being and the overlap with mental illness. I envision that with a focus on positive aspects the public health system will be broadened, so that the aim will no longer be to only help to heal the ill but also to increase overall happiness. From 2019, I am also the programme director of the Research Master

Pool

Biography: I have a background in medicinal chemistry (VU). I received my PhD at the University of Amsterdam in the field of Computational Physics & Chemistry. Since 2012 I work as an assistant professor at the department of Biological Psychology. Here I work on the metabolomics data sets collected by the Netherlands Twin Register (NTR). These data comprise hundreds of metabolic variables measured in over 6000 NTR subjects. Biologically, the metabolome can be viewed as an intermediate level in the framework starting at the genome and ending at biological function, e.g. behaviour. Metabolomics can therefore be utilized to gain detailed insights in biological (dis)function. The field of metabolomics nicely brings together my interests in (bio)chemistry, systems biology and analyses of multi-dimensional data.
