Specialisation Cell Biology and Molecular Interactions

This specialisation is about the smallest units of life. You will focus on biological properties of cells and processes within the cell.

What will you learn?

You will study processes at a molecular and cellular level using modern, state of the art research techniques. This will help you understand complex biological processes and phenomena such as evolution, aging, symbiosis, bio-interactions, physiology and immunology. Check the Study Handbook to see the courses of this specialisation and the chair groups at which you can do your thesis.

Thesis examples
