Biochemistry is the study of molecules and chemical processes in living organisms, while Cell Biology is concerned with the structure and physiology of cells, their components, and interactions with the environment. The two fields are combined in one comprehensive degree program, which will give you a broad understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms that form the basis of life, including the principles of inheritance and gene expression. This allows BCCB graduates to address in their careers important problems in today's society, be it by basic or by applied research, for example in the areas of biomedicine, biotechnology, or molecular biology. For this, the BCCB program at Jacobs University provides not only the theoretical background, but also substantial practical training. Students are, furthermore, involved in hands-on research during their studies. The program is regularly highly ranked in the CHE Rankings and U-Multirank.
A degree in Biochemistry and Cell Biology opens doors in international companies in the pharmaceutical, biochemical, and biomedical industries. You can work as a toxicologist, forensic scientist, or consultant in the public sector, and as a university lecturer or professor.
