Biology is a natural science about nature and its principles. This field of study explores living and non-living forms of organisms, including humans, animals, plants and microorganisms. Biology analyzes their structures, functioninig, growth, classifications, evolution, origin, distribution and interrelationships. It has a broad spectrum of academic fields like anatomy, astrobiology, biomechanics, botany, biophysics, pathology, zoology, neurobiology, anthropology, evolutionary biology, ichthyology, histology, biochemistry, ecology, physiology and many others.
Modern biology pays significant attention to cell structures, chemical and organic relations between atoms and molecules, gene engineering and modeling of evolution. Graduates can work in many different positions or improve knowledge at scientific research.
Our MSc Plant Science and Biotechnology degree provides training in modern molecular aspects of plant science and is suitable either for those who have done a more organism-based plant biology undergraduate degree or those from a non-plant biosciences background who wish to acquire knowledge and expertise in this area. Teaching is delivered by research active academics from the University of Leeds' Centre for Plant Sciences and is often aligned with their areas of expertise.
The programme concentrates on plant sciences and molecular biology and the integration of the disciplines, to provide healthy plants in a safe environment for food, non-food and health applications.
We offer a very comprehensive, interdisciplianry and fast track preparation for performing a PhD project at the Graduate School of Life Sciences (GSLS), University of Würzburg. Research topics for the Master program as well as for the subsequent PhD are clustered in the sections of Biomedicine, Integrative Biology, Infection and Immunity, and Neuroscience,
The 2-year part-time master study program is geared towards graduates in human medicine, practicing oncologists and scientists in the field of oncology. Successful completion of the program qualifies for leading positions in academic organizations, oncological centers or in the pharmaceutical industry.
Infections rank among the major causes of mortality and morbidity worldwide and confront society with major public health challenges.
This full-time two-year programme provides students with a unique and vibrant learning experience, combining taught modules from our reputable part-time programme with extensive research training. On this programme you will study theoretical aspects of medical microbiology, encompassing the biological and pathogenic properties of microbes, their role in health and disease, the reactions of the host to infection, and the scientific basis for the detection, control and anti-microbial treatment of infectious disease.
This course in Biodiversity and Conservation will provide in-depth training and experience for those looking to further their career in various aspects of biodiversity and its conservation, for students wishing to pursue further post-graduate research in this area, and for professionals already working in conservation biology wishing to obtain relevant qualifications.
Biotechnology is a globally expanding area with respect to both research and production. Food Biotechnology is a branch of food science in which modern biotechnological techniques are applied; on the other hand, it is an essential part of biotechnology aimed at developing new varieties of food involving biological systems in their processing.
The Graduate Certificate in Science is a flexible course designed for students who wish to expand on their undergraduate program or students who wish to change the direction of their focus.
Saarland University is one of the few universities in Germany offering a Master's programme at the interface of medicine and the biosciences. In contrast to traditional degree programmes in biology, the M.Sc. programme in Human and Molecular Biology focuses on molecular and pathophysiological aspects of a wide variety of human diseases.
The application of molecular biology in medical sciences has led to huge advances in the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of human disease. Students choosing to study course will enjoy a modular course that delivers both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required for research in the field of modern medically-related molecular biology.
La importancia de la seguridad de los alimentos en los ámbitos de la salud, social, y económico, y las demandas de formación detectadas (tanto a nivel interno de la Propia Universidad como a nivel externo) justifican la impartición de un Máster Oficial que aborde esta temática de un modo específico.
