Molecular Biomedicine - Master's Programme
The modules are divided into the categories of:
- Background Modules, at least 24 CP
- Clinical Modules, at least 12 CP
- Research Modules, at least 15 CP
- Skills Modules, at least 9 CP
In terms of scheduling and content, the Master's degree programme in Molecular Biomedicine is structured in such a way that a broad range of courses is offered as well as a high level of general education in different fields of molecular life sciences and methods. It is also possible to specialise in basic cellular and molecular biology as well as various diseases, including degenerative diseases, and various genetic-diagnostic treatments.
The Master's programme is highly research-oriented, and this is reflected in the teaching. The aim of the Research Modules is for students to become familiar with several aspects of research-based teaching and learning (such as questioning and methodological skills, decision-making in complex situations including laboratory situations, analysis, reflection and self-reflection, research and presentation techniques, etc.) as well as to implement an entire research cycle. Within most modules, students practice reading and understanding scientific articles in English, for example, to supplement the lecture material or to bolster their understanding of the scientific principles of the experiments. All in all, the practical part of the Master's programme, with its broad range of methods, dealt with in depth in selected areas, provides an excellent basis for numerous fields of occupation in biomedicine.
In the field of neuroscience, there is the possibility of specializing in key areas in
- molecular and cell biology
A wide range of methods is used, ranging from microscopic techniques, heterologous gene expression and electrophysiological measurements to analyzing the reactions of neurons in cell groups and in the intact nervous system to analyzing behavioral patterns. Specialization in cell and molecular biology basics, degenerative diseases as well as genetic diagnostic therapies and regenerative medicine is possible in neurogenetics, human genetics, genetics of childhood brain malformation, ophthalmology and geriatrics. Through a wide range of specialist training and instruction in various methodological and conceptual areas, the students are enabled to carry out basic scientific as well as clinical research in the field of molecular biomedicine independently.
All modules are offered in English.
