The establishment of a PhD programme in Molecular Medicine at  University of Göttingen, represents only the most recent effort of this kind. Established research focuses are represented by clinical and basic neurosciences, as well as research on the molecular basis of cardiovascular diseases. In addition, current efforts focus on cancer research, in particular the molecular regulatory processes pertaining to cancer as well as development and stem cell biology.


Other Cutting edge technology platforms are exemplified by facilities for transcriptome and proteome analysis; animal models including Drosophila, Xenopus, and rodents; life confocal microscopy; high content screening of cell morphology by automated microscopy and fluorescence activated cell sorting; and in vivo imaging.

Overall, the programme aims to support young scientists who address medically relevant problems with a sound background in basic sciences.
