Work at the interface between medicine, natural sciences and technology

Medical Diagnostic Technologies is a multidisciplinary Master's programme which makes use of new laboratory and analysis techniques for medical diagnostics. Medical diagnostics profits on a continual basis from new findings and technologies deriving from the classic natural sciences. These often lead to faster results and more successful treatment in established natural science technologies including the field of medicine. The Medical Diagnostic Technologies study programme was thus designed to meet the demand for experts in the field of molecular diagnostics.

Students decide individually which area of molecular diagnostics they wish to specialize in.  Typical areas are high throughput analysis, personalized medicine with immunological methods or the use of biomarkers, then validated by means of clinical studies.
