About

In the Biochemistry and Cell Biology program at Jacobs University Bremen is regularly highly ranked in the CHE Rankings and U-Multirank.

Overview

Biochemistry is the study of molecules and chemical processes in living organisms, while Cell Biology is concerned with the structure and physiology of cells, their components, and interactions with the environment. 

The two fields are combined in one comprehensive degree program, which will give you a broad understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms that form the basis of life, including the principles of inheritance and gene expression. 

This allows Biochemistry and Cell Biology graduates to address in their careers important problems in today's society, be it by basic or by applied research, for example in the areas of biomedicine, biotechnology, or molecular biology. For this, the BCCB program at Jacobs University Bremen provides not only the theoretical background, but also substantial practical training. Students are, furthermore, involved in hands-on research during their studies.
