Welcome to the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics!

If you are interested in the molecular processes of life our courses are definitely for you. You will study how proteins work, how they interact inside cells and what role they play in a number of diseases. In addition, you can learn about the composition of biomembranes and the essential role of membrane proteins in life processes. We also have methodology courses that deal with advanced techniques in Biochemistry, Biophysics, Bioinformatics and Structural Biochemistry.
Our courses range from the bachelor's to the master's level. The latter are strongly linked to our research which in many areas is world-leading. We offer one master's degree program and participate in a second one, both of which reflect the research at the Department. The Master's programs in Biochemistry and in Molecular Techniques in Life Science.


If you want to know more, go to the chemistry section website or the university course catalogue, choose the relevant semester and click on “Search”. A list of our course can be found in "Bachelor's and Master's studies" in the left menu.


For information about our post-graduate education (PhD) please look under "Research".
