The recent far-reaching and dynamic developments in molecular and cellular research set high standards for the training of future clinicians capable of working in this field. Equally, these developments dictate the need for scientists who are able to understand the rationale behind diagnosis and therapy, who can develop and guide the use of new molecular therapies for individual patients, and who are committed to transferring scientific knowledge into clinical practice. Interdisciplinary cooperation is an essential key to success in this endeavour.
The Master of Science in Translational Medical Research (MScTMR) programm builds on these demands and systematically provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in the frontier of translational medical research. Reflecting the research foci of our faculty, students can choose to specialize in Molecular Oncology, Neurobiology or Vascular Medicine.
The core curriculum covers the following themes
* research management and scientific conduct
* epidemiology and applied biostatistics
* molecular biology
* cell biology and genetics
* essential laboratory techniques in theory and practice
* disease processes (molecular, cellular and physiological changes)
* diagnostic and therapeutic strategies and models
* case studies in translational research
