Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions


Ziel der Vorlesung ist es, die zellbiologischen Aspekte biotechnologischer Applikationen zu erläutern und Ansätze zur Aufklärung zellulärer Reaktionen vorzustellen.Beispiele für Vorlesungsthemen: Signaltransduktion - Analyse von Zellen - Zellkulturen - Rezeptor-Tracking- Krebs-/Stammzellen - In vitro-Differenzierung - Zell-Chips - Methoden des HTS/HCS - n-Hybrid-Systeme - Zellfreie Systeme - Synthetische Zellen Die Themen sind nicht fixiert. Einzelne Vorlesungsthemen werden in einem im Modul "Technische Zellbiologie" integrierten Seminar vertieft.

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

Prüfungsdauer (in min.): 30.

Exam Repetition

There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.

Condensed Matter

When atoms interact things can get interesting. Fundamental research on the underlying properties of materials and nanostructures and exploration of the potential they provide for applications.

Nuclei, Particles, Astrophysics

A journey of discovery to understanding our world at the subatomic scale, from the nuclei inside atoms down to the most elementary building blocks of matter. Are you ready for the adventure?


Biological systems, from proteins to living cells and organisms, obey physical principles. Our research groups in biophysics shape one of Germany's largest scientific clusters in this area.
