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.
Most BCCB graduates move on to graduate education, and past graduates of this program have enrolled at prestigious universities world-wide. To these belong MSc and PhD programs at Imperial College London, LMU Munich, University of Heidelberg, University of Göttingen, ETH Zurich, EPF Lausanne, European Molecular Biology Laboratories (EMBL), various International Max Planck Research Schools (IMPRS), University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, Cornell University, Duke University, New York University, Yale, MIT, and Harvard University.
