The ‘Utrechtse Life Sciences Vereniging Amino’ (U.L.S.V. Amino), or Amino in short, has been brought to life by and for the students of Molecular Life Sciences (MLS), Molecular Biophysical Life Sciences (MBLS), and Graduate School of Life Sciences (GSLS) from the University of Utrecht (UU).
Because of the expansion of MLS, officially being a track linked to the studies of Biology and Chemistry, the request for a community of its own got bigger and bigger and as a natural response, U.L.S.V. Amino was founded. When the new bachelor MBLS was started, Amino became the study association for these students as well. Due to the overlap in curricula, the bachelor is also associated with the department of Physics and the department of Pharmacy.
U.L.S.V. Amino’s pursuit is to make the study years of M(B)LS and other Life Sciences oriented students as comfortable and entertaining as can be. This is done by educative support, educative broadening and sociability-increasing festivities.
