All biological processes have a molecular basis that we have to understand in order to understand life itself and to fathom the causes of diseases. Organisms represent the highest form of organization and the ordering principles span many orders of magnitude from the level of molecules to cells and unique organs. The aim of the Molecular Cell Biology course is to convey these principles comprehensively. The students get an overview of a wide range of modern cell biological, biochemical, genetic and computer-aided methods and are thus able to answer fundamental questions in biology and medical research.

The establishment of the master’s degree in three faculties (the mathematical and natural sciences, the medical and the agricultural faculties) opens up a unique spectrum of thematic orientations and possible elective modules. It is an explicit wish and endeavor of the master’s program to enable graduates to go directly to their doctorate.
