Two laboratory rotations
In the third term, you will participate in the work of two different research groups (which you can choose yourself), where you will gain knowledge about the scientific problems of the group, and the experimental techniques and approaches to tackle these problems. Each laboratory rotation [PDF] (146 KB)takes 9 weeks. According to the meeting of our examination board on 16th November, 2017 you have to fill in a lab rotation form [PDF] (69 KB)before starting with your laboratory rotation.
Alternatively, you can participate in the laboratory rotations between the first and second, and the second and third term, and thereby shorten the total time for getting your M.Sc. to three terms. However, only excellent students who obtain the grades 1.0 to 1.3 in the first module of the first semester (module A, biochemistry and molecular cell biology) are eligible for the accelerated track - see our examination regulations.
You get 12 credit points for each laboratory rotation and additionally 3 credit points for a workshop presentation, i. e. you totally get 27 credit points for this module.
