Medical biology is considered one of the central leading sciences for addressing global challenges such as demographic change, environmental change, and associated diseases such as cancer, allergies, autoimmunity, infectious diseases, cardiovascular, metabolic, and degenerative diseases.
A detailed understanding of the complex molecular genetic, cellular, and physiological processes involved in human disease, the identification of novel diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive biomarkers, and the development and production of innovative drugs are prerequisites for both tailored, highly effective therapeutic approaches and targeted preventive measures.
The Master’s program Medical Biology offers a future-oriented and high-quality education in the field of biomedicine and health at the interface between basic research and translational, clinical and pharmaceutical research.

The Joint Degree Master’s Program Molecular Biology at the Faculty of Natural Sciences of the University of Salzburg and the Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences of the Johannes Kepler University Linz offers an in-depth understanding of the molecular, cell biological and biotechnological disciplines of the life sciences.
Building on a broad foundation of core scientific disciplines such as (bio)chemistry, (bio)physics, mathematics, and biotechnology, this program offers molecular and cellular-oriented biologists in-depth training in organic chemistry, biochemistry, biophysics, bioanalytics, structural biology, genetics, cell biology, systems biology, and molecular biotechnologies.
The study-specific training is rounded off by interdisciplinary subjects. The offer of this specialization in molecular biology is designed to be flexible in the sense that it reflects the current state and development in various disciplines of molecular biology. This offer is also oriented towards the demand on the part of the students as well as the respective available resources and the use of individual courses also by students of other fields of study.
