Что я буду изучать?

Tübingen’s Master’s program is an excellent choice for students seeking an advanced academic and laboratory research training program in modern cellular and molecular medicine with direct application to the study of human disease.

A particular strength of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Tübingen is our highly acclaimed applied research in the specialized areas of neurosciences, immunology, oncology, and infection biology. Training in these specialized areas is offered by experts who are predominantly active researchers or clinical scientists. As expert teachers they provide a comprehensive and thoroughly up-to-date overview of the area. Each student chooses two of the following four specialized areas:


Exploring the specialist field of immunology will allow you to gain a sound knowledge of the complex processes involved in the regulation of cellular and immunological processes in both humans and animals. The immunological processes are thus examined in association with disease-induced malfunctions, for example in the case of immunity defects or in tumor immunology. The lectures in the series “Advanced Immunology” cover the detailed mechanisms of the immune system, including an examination of the recent discoveries made in cellular and molecular immunology. The major topics comprise the evolution of immune systems, therapeutic antibodies, computational immunobiology, antigen processing, cellular communication, negative and positive regulatory mechanisms in immunity, interaction between immune systems, and pathogens and pathomechanisms.


Cancer is a frequently occurring complex disease with an increasing incidence and a high socio-economic impact. Both the lecture on Advanced Molecular Oncology and the other courses in this area are intended to provide further knowledge on the molecular basis of tumor development and molecular approaches to pathology and diagnostics, as well as molecular strategies in cancer therapy. Based on the topics to be addressed, students will acquire a solid understanding of the state-of-the-art of molecular and translational oncology with respect to:

Molecular mechanisms of cancer development
Molecular pathology and diagnostics
Molecular strategies in cancer therapies


The scope of neuroscience has expanded to include different approaches used to study the molecular, cellular, developmental, structural, functional, and computational aspects of the nervous system, as well as neurological disorders. The techniques used by scientists have also expanded enormously, from molecular and cellular studies of individual nerve cells to imaging of sensory and motor tasks in the brain.

The main lecture series in this area places considerable emphasis on the molecular and cellular pathomechanisms of the most common dementias and other neurodegenerative disorders, especially Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Other dementias covered are the heterogenous group of Frontotemporal Dementias, and the Prion diseases, including Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. Additional movement disorders discussed in this lecture series include Huntington’s disease and various ataxias. Finally, Motor Neuron Diseases such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis will be presented and the recent link to the pathogenesis of Frontotemporal Dementia highlighted.

Infection Biology

Viral infections, the threat of pandemics, and the emergence of antibiotic resistance have made clear the enormity of the unmet medical needs in microbial pathogenesis. Most likely, there will be an increasing demand for knowledge about infectious diseases, in particular from developing areas of the world, where microbial infections are more prevalent and often have devastating consequences.
