Molecular cell biology and physiology is the essential integrational discipline: this focus connects fields of research and methods of biochemistry and molecular biology, bioinformatics and developmental biology, genetics, immunology, microbiology and modern microscopy and also develops theoretic and methodological fundamentals for biotechnology and molecular medicine. Looking at biomedical research, the importance of research in this field will become even greater in the futures. The activities of the members of this research focus are part of the Cells-in-Motion Cluster of Ecxellence. The CRC 1348 is also integrated into this focus. In cooperation with colleagues from the Department of Medicine the Master course Biomedicine is open for students.
