Welcome to the website of the International Master Molecular and Developmental Stem Cell Biology at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum.

Stem cells have a major impact on nearly all disciplines of life sciences dealing with eukaryotic cells or organisms. Predictably, a strong demand on young scientists who are able to cope with a highly interdisciplinary approach will arise in the near future.

We want to satisfy this demand by offering a highly interdisciplinary master degree course that is oriented to cutting-edge research and current markets. The course combines traditional basic disciplines such as cell biology, histology, biochemistry and pathology with recent progress in epigenetics, bioinformatics and developmental biology to secure a broad understanding towards innovative translational approaches in medicine.

On this website you can find comprehensive information about our master course as well as a guide with information detailing how to apply. We also provide information for international students that are interested in the city of Bochum, the University and our Program. For more information please also download our brochure.
