Education: The aim of the two-year Masters study programme in Molecular Biomedicine at HHU Düsseldorf is to train a new generation of biomedical scientists with an excellent education in an interdisciplinary environment. With a profound understanding of the molecular function and dysfunction of cells, tissues and organs, new insights into disease mechanisms and their diagnosis are being sought.
Focus human diseases: Our curriculum is inherently interdisciplinary and our faculty members are established in the research of human diseases within the framework of basic research. Students from various Bachelor programmes meet a comprehensive and integrated curriculum in molecular, biological and medical life sciences. This includes a wide range of courses in clinical and theoretical medicine, biology & biochemistry as well as a broad method spectrum.
Research foci: Internationally recognized scientists with expertise in basic biomedical research support the study program and will provide a fascinating insight into biomedical research. HHU's special research areas such as molecular & clinical hepatology, cardiovascular biology and membranology are represented in the program, as are the research areas of infectiology, oncology, diabetology, stem cell research and translational & cellular neuroscience.
Organisations: In addition to the excellent research facilities on the HHU campus, this study program provides access to the German Diabetes Centre (DDZ), the Leibniz Research Institute for Environmental Medicine (IUF) and the Research Centre Jülich (FZ Jülich).
Career field: This Masters study programme is dedicated to the training of biomedical scientists in basic research, the clinical field and the research pharmaceutical industry.
