Human Pathobiology systemically investigates the biological mechanisms underlying human disease. Human pathobiologists want to elucidate which biological mechanisms (aetiology and pathogenesis) are implicated in human disease processes with the goal to develop new rational therapies based on biological disease mechanism. The goal is to develop the medicines of the future. These ‘medicines’ can be on the level of prevention, treatment and repair.
The programme provides students with a solid base in research methodology, statistics and biostatistics, laboratory research and communication skills. Leading scientists in fields ranging from metabolism, membrane transport, neuromuscular disease and inflammation to screening efficacy, clinical interventions and evidence-based medicine are involved in the teaching programme as lecturers and tutors.
