Six Reasons to choose this Master's Program

Get involved in molecular disease research
To investigate the molecular mechanisms that can set a disease in motion or make it worse, alleviate or stop it is vital for making progress in preventing, diagnosing and treating diseases. You need to delve into cell as well as molecular biology and biochemistry and know your way around the human body before you can translate results from the lab into new prevention, diagnosis or therapy approaches. That is why you study Medical Life Sciences.
Experience hands-on training in high-end research labs
Lab practicals are part of your studies. You will be involved in current research projects by the lab groups you join. You will be the one choosing the lab you want to join, contacting the lab leader and carrying out experiments in genuine research labs.
Learn from renowned researchers
Medical Life Sciences lectures, seminars and tutorials are held by scientists who have a long track record of publishing in high-impact journals such as Cell, Science, Nature, The Lancet or the New England Journal of Medicine to name but a few. Your lecturers gladly share their knowledge about their research topics with interested students.
Focus on what interests you
You will move through mandatory modules that are vital for proceeding with the more specialized modules. But at the same time, you choose one of the following focus areas you want to concentrate on: Evolutionary Medicine, Inflammation or Oncology. All three of them are important fields in today’s biomedicine and offer fascinating topics.
Choose electives that complement your focus area
To dive into a focus area with lots of lectures on the latest research results, debates and lab work is one thing, but you will be able to add electives to your focus area: MolOcular for eye research that goes well together with Inflammation, but it can also be just the thing you want to study together with Evolutionary Medicine. Whether you take Imaging next to Oncology or rather Tracing Disease through Time to embark on a journey through thousands of years because you find it helps understand cancer - everything is possible.
See through a kaleidoscope of teaching styles: Excursions, workshops, project work and much more
Whether it is presenting a lecture topic to your fellow students in class, doing programming exercises in the computer lab, holding rigorous scientific discussions with your professors and peers in seminars, learning the ropes of science communication in workshops, going on excursions or developing concepts for scientific studies with your fellow students: You will meet challenges and opportunities in various study forms, with a lot of room for creativity and new ideas. Enjoy!
