Further information provided by the department

  • Special features regarding teaching
    Particular emphasis is placed on research-oriented and translational teaching. Through the cooperation with numerous researchers from around Heidelberg, students receive an insight into current research at an early stage. The close cooperation with the University Clinic in Clinical Pharmacy offers the students training which is as close to reality as possible. Small groups, modern equipment and a broad choice of research placements ensure everyday student life which is interesting and optimally supervised.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    Since autumn 2014 the practicals are carried out in renovated laboratories which are equipped according to latest state-of-the-art technology. The IPMB (Institute for Pharmacy and Molecular Biology) has ultra-modern imaging technology, a pool of equipment in the Pharmaceutical Technology and Analysis department to industry level as well as numerous state-of-the-art applications in the field of Chemistry and Molecular Biology. Thanks to the excellent infrastructure in Heidelberg, the students also have the possibility of working with such equipment outside of the IPMB and can therefore always be trained in accordance with state-of-the-art technology.
  • Special features regarding research activities
    The IPMB (Institute for Pharmacy and Molecular Biology) studies the development, examination and application of drugs and medicinal substances and the clarification of related molecular and cellular mechanisms. Key research areas include nucleic acids as tools and therapeutic target structures, new anti-infectives, Molecular Evolution research, Phytochemistry, Proteomics and Systems Biology, "drug targeting" and transport of active agents and the research into neurodegenerative diseases. Close collaboration within the Institute makes translational research at the highest level possible.

  • Other special features
    The friendly atmosphere, the good ratio between students and assistant professors as well as a high level of identification with the subject and the Institute are the outstanding features of the course at the IPMB. In addition to knowledge transfer, the training of independent researchers and extra-curricular activities are in the foreground. The participation of students in university policy through the departmental student organisation and students' union is strongly supported. Numerous cooperations in Germany and abroad allow maximum flexibility during the course.
