FROM BEDSIDE TO THE BENCH

Infectious diseases and immune disorders are a constant threat to life – both human and animal. This Master’s programme gives young scientists the knowledge and research expertise needed to solve the public health problems of the future. Well-trained and creative minds are needed to tackle the increasing incidences of allergies and autoimmune disease, as well as emerging infections such as Ebola and MRSA. Knowledge of the immune system has benefits for other areas of medicine as well, such as in the development of personalized medicine to treat cancer or chronic inflammatory diseases. This programme will give you a firm foundation in the field of infection and immunity (I&I) and covers a variety of topics such as fundamental and clinical immunology, vaccines, immunotherapy, mechanisms of infectious diseases, molecular epidemiology of infections, virulence factors in microorganisms, and resistance to treatment. As a Master’s student of I&I, you will study molecular, cellular, and clinical aspects of pathogens and immune responses. You will also work in a lively research environment during your six to nine-month internship, during which you will gain hands-on experience of biomedical research. We believe that understanding both pathogens and host reactions provides deeper insight into the mechanisms of illness, so you will complete internships in both infection and immunity. You will also take theory courses and seminars, as well as master classes led by specialists in the field. The annual scientific symposium is a particular highlight. This symposium is organized by Master’s students and features... [-]
