M.Sc. PBioC - Physical Biology of Cells and Cell Interactions

Information for Ukrainian students

We want to support Ukrainian students who meet the qualifications of our master's program to continue their studies with us.

If you would like to attend our courses, please get in touch with Dr. Isabell Schmitz!
She will provide further information, advice and could get you in touch with Faculty members. If possible, please provide transcripts/documents of your student history.
Please note, that formal enrolment procedures as full or visiting student are currently adjusted to fit the needs of Ukrainian students, but we try to offer intermediate solutions for the time being until the formalities have been arranged.


The two-year Master's programme Physical Biology of Cells and Cell Interactions (PBioC) takes place at an international level and promotes the acquisition of an in-depth research-oriented education in the fields of cell biology and physical biology.

The Master's programme provides students with an understanding of fundamental life processes from cell growth, cell-cell communication and differentiation to hormonal, inflammatory, angiogenic signalling and aging. These processes are studied in different animal and plant model systems in context of cells, tissues and entire model organisms. The experimental and conceptual approaches of the programme include cutting-edge methods in cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, bioinformatics, immunology and genetics, combined with various advanced microscopy techniques and applications, data analysis as well as (neuro-)physiology and morphological analysis.

The programme offers a combination of theoretical courses and own experimental activities from the first semester on. In addition to the basics of the sub-disciplines, students are introduced to the current state of international research and acquire occupational skills that enable interdisciplinary research, independent scientific thinking and responsible action.
