About

Biochemistry at the master’s level from University of Zurich offers students a deepened theoretical exploration of Structural Biology, Protein Engineering and molecular Biochemistry and allows them to further develop their experimental skill within projects and their master’s thesis. 

Overview

  • Biochemistry is a scientific discipline at the interface of chemistry and biology. Biochemistry attempts to describe, reconstruct and even further develop, on a chemical and physical level, molecular processes occuring in living nature. 
  • The results of research in biochemistry help understand molecular causes of diseases on an atomic and quantitative level. 
  • Pharmaceutical research and development build up on fundamental biochemical findings. 
  • But, results of biochemical research are furthermore found in biotechnology, in environmental protection, in nutrition industry, and very likely in informatics in the near future. 
  • And, gradually biochemistry will become a key area when chemical processes have to be rendered less harmful to the environment.

  • The Master’s degree in Biochemistry from University of Zurich is the professional qualification for research activities in the life sciences.
