New Course “Scientific Writing for Life Sciences and Chemistry”


This spring semester, Dr. Gina Cannarozzi, will teach a new 1 ECTS course in scientific writing tailored for doctoral and Master’s students in life sciences, chemistry, and pharmaceutical sciences.

This 1-semester course (14 x 1 hour) introduces students to the practical and theoretical principles of scientific writing in English. To improve their language skills, students will do practical exercises and write short scientific texts, which will be returned with feedback from the instructor.

Students will learn how to 1) structure, write, and revise scientific texts for different target audiences in English, 2) publish their work, and 3) communicate the importance of their work to others. They will also learn which tools are available for each step of the writing process and how to use them.

The course provides a solid foundation for writing scientific articles or theses. Students are encouraged to write on a topic close to their research area. More information can be found in the course catalog, Moodle, and in the course flyer (PDF).
