What will I learn?

Medical biology is regarded as one of the central leading sciences required to manage global challenges such as demographic and environmental change with their accompanying diseases such as cancer, allergies, autoimmunity, and infectious diseases, as well as circulatory disorders and cardiac, metabolic and degenerative diseases. A detailed understanding of the complex molecular genetic, cellular and physiological processes in the human disease process, the identification of new diagnostic, prognostic and predictive biomarkers, as well as the development and production of innovative medication provides the precondition for customized and highly effective therapeutic approaches and targeted prevention measures. The Master's course in Medical Biology offers a forward-looking high-quality education on the interface of basic research and transnational, clinical and pharmaceutical research.

Which career opportunities do I have?

The advanced education in the field of medical biology opens up a broad variety of occupations for graduates in private and public enterprises and institutions in the areas of healthcare and medicine. Graduates of the MSc course in Medical Biology are qualified to work in the fields of research, development, production, analytics and distribution in the pharmaceutical industry and in the biotechnology sector, research and teaching in public research institutions and in the academic sector, research and development in the healthcare and medical sector such as clinical institutes, collaborations on clinical studies as well as quality management in the pharmaceutical and the biotechnological industry.
