The Bachelor's course in Molecular Biomedicine combines methods and the molecular understanding of the natural sciences with current contents of medicine. The goal is to obtain a molecular understanding of the mechanisms and functions of complex life processes and to understand the pathophysiology of human diseases. This is also the basis for the development of new diagnostics and therapy approaches, which are intended to combat human diseases. Internationally renowned scientists and state-of-the-art laboratory equipment are available for the training. In order to ensure an efficient study, the students are advised and supervised by the lecturers (mentor system) throughout the course. An international compatibility of the study program is made possible through the application of the ECTS credit point system. The 60 study places will be awarded by a University Selection Procedure. It is possible to start at the beginning of each Winter semester. The application period runs from May to July 15th.

"In the winter of 2006, I started in the class of the last "Diploma" version of Molecular Biomedicine. I benefitted in particular from the structured practical modules during the advanced study period, covering a versatile array of life sciences topics. The mentoring during these lab rotations was excellent and working on cutting-edge projects gave realistic insight into the everyday life in a basic science research lab. The well-designed project design of my diploma thesis under the supervision of Professor Michael Famulok furthermore led to co-authorship on two scientific publications (Stumpfe et al, 2010; Bill et al, 2011). 
Retrospectively, I am grateful for the thorough practical training I received from organic chemistry to clinical models, which served as a solid base during my PhD at the Sorbonne University in Paris and now during my Postdoc at the Columbia University in New York and offered new perspectives to nourish interdisciplinary research."

Postdoc in the Immunobiology Laboratory of the Francis Crick Institute, London

"The most inspiring thing of the molecular biomedicine program was that it has given me the opportunity to get a deep insight into a wide range of natural sciences. I have discovered my passion for immunology, which is now as then, driving me in my research of the basic mechanisms of infections and cancer. I have especially appreciated the early promotion of practical work in the laboratories participating in the study program. This has been a decisive support for my further career."
