Welcome to the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
We study the basic molecular and biochemical processes that mediate cellular growth and development and cellular interactions in living organisms.
We use highly advanced analytical and biochemical techniques and computational tools (bioinformatics) to characterize and understand gene organization, protein structure and function as well as membrane composition and dynamics. Our research provides insight into the mechanisms of disease development, for instance in diabetes, cancer, neurodegenerative disorders and pathogenic bacterial infections.
The international and interdisciplinary scientific research environment at the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology provides an excellent platform for a future career in biotechnology, biomedicine or bioinformatics.
