Molecular Life Sciences is an interdisciplinary field focusing on the molecular underpinnings of life processes. It integrates genetics, molecular biology, and biochemistry to explore the essence of biological phenomena from DNA replication to systems biology. Students investigate the molecular mechanisms that govern cell function, organism growth, and disease development. The curriculum offers insights into biotechnological applications, genetic engineering, and the molecular basis of health. Graduates are primed for roles in medical research, drug design, or agricultural innovation, contributing to solutions in healthcare, environmental sustainability, and the new frontiers of synthetic biology.
