Biochemistry PhD

Research in the School of Biosciences revolves around understanding systems and processes in the living cell. It has a strong molecular focus with leading-edge activities that are synergistic with one another and complementary to the teaching provision. Our expertise in disciplines such as biochemistry, microbiology and biomedical science allows us to exploit technology and develop groundbreaking ideas in the fields of genetics, molecular biology, protein science and biophysics. Fields of enquiry encompass a range of molecular processes from cell division, transcription and translation through to molecular motors, molecular diagnostics and the production of biotherapeutics and bioenergy.

We also offer a conventional MSc programme by research and dissertation, in which you undertake a single, focused, research project from day one, and attend only certain components of our transferable skills modules. We also assign a Postgraduate Supervisory Committee to MSc students, to offer advice and keep a regular check on progress.

You can select topics for the MSc, MPhil or PhD from any of the research areas covered in the Research Areas section.
