The aim of the master's degree in Molecular Precision Medicine at the Medical University of Vienna and the University of Vienna is to train highly motivated and talented students in the scientific basis of human diseases, the development and clinical evaluation of therapeutics and modern clinical practices in connection with precision medicine.


Students learn the pathogenesis of human diseases on a molecular and mechanistic level. You will learn how this information can be used to develop precision therapeutics that target the underlying causes of the disease; how these therapeutics are evaluated for efficacy and toxicity and what future challenges precision medicine will face. Fundamental scientific and therapeutic concepts are illustrated in detail using appropriate diseases and case studies so that students can understand the disease from the molecular basis to clinical treatment.

Students acquire the skills to use bioinformatics to analyze large sets of genomic information, including programming and applied statistics. Students will be exposed to ethical and health economic issues related to the practice of precision medicine so that they can critically assess future socio-economic challenges.

After Graduation

  • Molecular Precision Medicine graduates at the University of Vienna will be equipped to pursue careers in basic, clinical, or biomedical research in academia or industry (e.g., biotechnology, pharmaceutical industry) with a deep molecular and mechanistic understanding of human disease. Students will acquire knowledge of basic molecular laboratory techniques. They will receive detailed training of human disease pathogenesis at the molecular and mechanistic level.
  • In addition, they will have core competencies in bioinformatics, including programming, data mining and interrogation, and statistical analysis, which will enable them to pursue careers in academic bioinformatics as well as clinical analysis of genomic datasets.
