Applied Biology (B.Sc.)

Course content

Our students learn and research in modern laboratories in the fields of fluorescence-based flow cytometry (FACS), PCR application and the antibody-based detection method (ELISA). The Applied Biology (B.Sc.) course focuses on modern subjects and techniques in biomedicine, such as genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, immunology, microbiology and clinical research.

Practical training is an important part of the course: the internships take place on modern equipment, as can be found in everyday life in biomedical research. This includes fluorescence microscopes, PCR devices, FACS machines and patch clamp workstations.

Manageable group sizes and a balanced student-lecturer ratio are the basis for a pleasant learning and working atmosphere. Internationality is very important to us: We maintain cooperation with partner universities all over the world, where you can complete one or more semesters abroad.
