MSc Molecular Life Sciences (Specialisation in Cellular and Molecular Biology)    Back

University of Bern Course Type: Master taught Start Date: September
Location: Bern, Switzerland Duration: Full time - 1.5 Years Fees/total cost: EUR 2,062.58 (CHF 2,250.00)


During the master course and in particular by preparing their master thesis the students deepen and specialise their knowledge and skills in the area of molecular life sciences. A particular emphasis of the program is to involve the students actively in research projects. The degree of Master of Science (MSc) in Molecular Life Sciences can lead to an employment in industrial, governmental and research settings or to a further education eg to PhD studies.

Research topics include DNA repair and recombination, molecular biology of RNA, molecular parasitology, developmental biology, signal transduction, protein biochemistry, microbial physiology and biochemistry. Yeasts, bacteria, trypanosomatids, insects and mammalian cell cultures are used as model systems.
