Molecular Medicine and Inflammation

Molecular medicine is evolving to an important scientific and clinical discipline with the aim to unravel the causes and mechanisms of disease, employing state-of-the-art technologies and to develop novel therapies. Inflammation, i.e. the complex response of a body or organs to harmful stimuli, is an integral part of molecular medicine. Accordingly, the mission of the Doctoral School Molecular Medicine and Inflammation is to address challenges and innovative research questions in these areas within a plethora of projects accompanied by an excellent teaching program to provide students with all needed knowledge and skills. Applicants must hold a Master´s degree or equivalent in Medicine, Chemistry or Life Sciences. As the language used for teaching and preparation of the thesis is English, outstanding English skills are required.
