The Molecular Cell and Developmental Biology programme at the University of Innsbruck is based on elective practice-oriented courses from the fields of developmental biology and cellular biology, including aspects of biomedicine. The programme is organized by the Faculty of Biology in cooperation with the Medical University.Teaching is research-oriented and based on fundamental questions of the implementation of genomic information into biological processes.The research focus of the participating scientists and of the programme as a whole is on signal transduction and gene regulation in development, stem cells and regeneration of tissues, and functional and structural genome evolution.
- research in molecular biology and teaching activities in all fields of biology,
- basic research in biomedicine,
- scientific activities in companies (e.g. in pharmaceutics, medicine, toxicology, bioanalytics),
