Research in Molecular Life Science plays a central role in all disciplines of the Life Sciences. Currently, Molecular Life Science Research is at an exciting point of development, since for the first time a mechanistic understanding of the phenomenon of Life in all its facets is within reach. Molecular Life Science Research has a wide impact on modern life in different areas such as Medicine, Plant and Animal Biology, Biotechnology and even Ethics.
The Jacobs University Molecular Life Science graduate program (MoLife) invites students to participate and take an active role in the development of this fascinating field. Faculty from the Molecular Life Sciences and neighboring fields at Jacobs University Bremen have combined their expertise in a graduate program which provides students with the benefits of cooperation and synergy in research and teaching.
The MoLife program offers the following specialization areas: Cellular and Molecular Biology,Computational Biology, Molecular Biophysics, Molecular Biotechnology, Molecular Genetics.
Jacobs University Bremen has established a strong research network in the specialisation areas of Cellular & Molecular Biology, Computational Biology, Molecular Biotechnology, Molecular Biophysics and Molecular Genetics. These areas are reflected in the MoLife Graduate Program. The close co-operation between the research groups working in the different fields is characteristic of the interdisciplinary and interactive approach that Jacobs University has to science and technology. Jacobs University research groups apply modern techniques to address central questions in the understanding of the basic mechanisms of life.
