    Cell Biology

    The Master programme in Cell Biology focuses on understanding fundamental life processes in higher organisms, from cell growth, cell differentiation and cell-cell communication to hormonal, inflammatory and neuronal signaling. These processes are studied in the context of cells, individual tissues and complex organisms, thereby expanding the horizons of cell biology to molecular physiology. Emphasis is also put on understanding the function of biological macromolecules and interaction net- works associated with diseases such as cancer, diabetes and brain disorders. The experimental and conceptual approaches include modern cell biological, (bio)chemi- cal and genetic methods combined with modern molecular imaging techniques, and morphological and physiological technologies.

    The successful completion of the Master programme in Cell Biology prepares the student for a professional career in scientific research areas concerned with biologi- cal questions on the cellular and organismal level. It provides a solid scientific back- ground for further academic studies towards a PhD followed by postdoctoral training, but also provides the Master graduates with a scientific profile desired for competiti- ve positions in the biomedical and pharmaceutical industry, clinical research labora- tories, and health organizations.
