What role does DNA play in shaping your life? How does a healthy cell turn into a cancerous cell? Your degree in Molecular BioSciences can help you answer these questions and more.
The interdisciplinary Bachelor's degree program in Molecular BioSciences gives you an opportunity to focus on issues in the fields of molecular biology, molecular genetics, immunology, chemistry, physics and biophysics.
The program is about your body's processes on a molecular level (i.e., how do nerve cells communicate, how does your heart beat, why can a virus attack you) asd well as about the basic building blocks of life: DNA, RNA and proteins.
The JKU and the University of Salzburg have come together to offer you a program that features a broad curriculum and includes applied practice!
