The graduates of the Master’s Program in Immunology are qualified for a large variety of possible career paths in medical research: Through an early introduction to scientific work, a M.Sc. in Immunology prepares graduates for a career in medical research, especially in the field of immunological basic research or immunological research in translational clinical topics.  Pharmacological research and development:  Through additional exposure to pharmacological teaching content combined with immunological and clinical connections, the foundations for a career in pharmacological research and development are well established.  Biotechnology:  Because of the interconnected combination of subjects with further emphasis in the fields of molecular biology, human genetics, microbiology and infectiology and practical work in the laboratory, there are many opportunities in the field of biotechnology, for example therapeutics and diagnostics development. 

Competencies and Interests Required

• Admission Requirements:  See Above
• Enthusiasm for research and immunological problems

More information

Immunological research has a long tradition in Magdeburg and ‘Immunology and Molecular Medicine of Inflammation’ is one of the two research foci of the medical faculty.  The Master’s Program in Immunology is an integral part of the pillar of education for the Health Campus Immunology, Infectiology and Inflammation (GC-I³) and is thus optimally integrated in the research focus Immunology and Molecular Medicine of Inflammation.
