MMPU Teaching

The MMPU teaching seminar series fosters the interdisciplinary information exchange in the field of molecular medicine for students of medicine, biology and biochemistry who are striving for a bachelor, masters, MD or PhD degree and other interested scientists and guests. The teaching philosophy aims at the molecular understanding of the basis of human diseases, its applications in diagnosis and therapy by the integration of ‘bedside medicine’ and basic research.

Approved MMPU teachers have a certified didactic background and belong to an international and interdisciplinary team of molecular research-oriented MDs and PhDs.

The MMPU seminar series is held every semester and is approved by the Medical and the Biological faculty of the University of Heidelberg (3 credits – ECTS, including the preparation of an own presentation).
