Study track of Biochemistry and Structural Biology

What are the molecular mechanisms underlying life´s processes at the most fundamental level?

The study track of biochemistry and structural biology focuses on macromolecular structure and function and molecular interactions. Research laboratories associated with the study track use a wide range of modern techniques and experimental and computational approaches relevant to address the molecular basis of key biological phenomena.  

The courses provide the student with up-to-date theoretical knowledge in biochemistry and structural biology and strong hands-on methodological experience through lab rotations and thesis work. In addition to quantitative and analytical skills, the courses support the development of creative and critical thinking and good communication skills.

Examples of courses:

  • Advanced Research Project in biochemistry/structural biology research
  • Introduction to Structural Biology
