Specialisation Plant for Human and Animal Health

Plants are increasingly being used as a safe and inexpensive alternative for the production of valuable proteins for food supplements and pharmaceuticals. This specialisation provides a fundamental understanding of how plants can be exploited for the production of foreign proteins and metabolites. In addition biomedical aspects, including immunology and food allergy, and also nutritional genomics and plant metabolomics can be studied.


Courses for the specialisation Plants for Human and Animal Health are listed in the online Study Handbook.
