Questions & answers

Cellular Biology

The cellular biology programme focusses on the principles or treatment of infections and viral diseases, and innovative approaches on replacing a patient’s own tissues.

Structural Biology

The structural biology programme covers research into the 3D structure of enzymes, enzyme-ligand interactions, drug design, or the structure of sugars on virus surfaces of significance for recognising or combating viruses.


The neurosciences programme teaches you the basics of neuroanatomy and neurogenetics for an in-depth understanding of genetic defects leading to illnesses. Furthermore, you learn how the various endocrine systems in the central nervous system function and interact.

Clinical Immunology

The clinical immunology programme addresses the various gastroenterological, haematological, dermatological and rheumatological clinical syndromes for an insight into clinical immunological and genetic aspects of diverse autoimmune diseases and allergies. You gain an in-depth understanding of immunopathogenesis for diagnostics and therapy of a wide range of illnesses.


Job Prospects

You will be sought after to work as a scientist at a university, research institute, or in industrial research, or as a laboratory or development project manager in companies involved in diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, or biotech.

As our graduate, you will acquire practical skills that enable you to solve problems independently and utilise your creative potential.
