Welcome to the department of Molecular Biology!

Research-driven teaching at an international level is one of the hallmarks of academic training. The Department of Molecular Biology warrants these ambitious standards by introducing the students to a variety of current research projects, enabling them to actively participate in and propel these projects using state-of-the-art methods.

Sixteen research groups at the department share their expertise in the areas of allergology, immunology, structural and chemical biology, bioanalytics, proteomics, (epi-)genomics, tumour biology, stem cell biology, microbiology, glycobiology, molecular plant biophysics and biochemistry. Within interdisciplinary teams we tackle current challenges in allergy and immunology, cancer, and bio-nano-interactions from multiple angles. We publish our research results in internationally peer-reviewed journals and further translate them into practice by diverse cooperations together with clinical and industrial partners.
