What will I learn?

This programme aims at an in-depth education in the translation of basic knowledge within molecular biosciences into applications regarding the prevention, diagnostics and therapy of human diseases. The Faculty of Medicine has a long tradition and is further expanding its programmes towards such research goals. The establishment of a PhD programme in molecular medicine represents only the most recent effort of this kind. Established research focuses are represented by clinical and basic neurosciences, as well as research on the molecular basis of cardiovascular diseases. In addition, current efforts focus on cancer research, in particular the molecular regulatory processes pertaining to cancer as well as development and stem cell biology. Other major research topics include biochemistry, in particular intracellular compartmentalization and protein modifications, as well as infectious diseases and immunology. Cutting edge technology platforms are exemplified by facilities for transcriptase and proteome analysis; animal models including Drosophila, Venous, and rodents; life co focal microscopy; high content screening of cell morphology by automated microscopy and fluorescence activated cell sorting; and in vivo imaging.

The programme provides PhD students with teaching experience in these disciplines and technologies. The candidates are expected to carry out a high-profile research project in one of the afore-mentioned disciplines, within a 3-year period of time. They will be supported by stringent supervision, thesis committees, methods courses and informal counseling.

Overall, the programme aims to support young scientists who address medically relevant problems with a sound background in basic sciences.
