Our Molecular Biology degree is taught in state-of-the-art laboratories where you will discover the molecular processes that lie at the heart of biology. These processes support pioneering developments in the pharmaceutical and biomedical industries and increase understanding of essential biological processes. This degree provides knowledge and understanding of molecular and cellular biology, modern techniques for their investigation and how to apply these techniques within effective research. Why study BSc Biology (Molecular Biology) at Middlesex University? This specialist degree explores the interactions of cells, molecules and their applications within medicine and other biological disciplines. You will discover how biology can support life-saving advancements within the pharmaceutical and biomedical fields as well as furthering understanding of essential biological processes throughout all fields of biology. You will study within a department that is making ground-breaking developments in cancer prevention, placing you at the forefront of breakthrough research. You will support your own investigations using these research findings and will study biological developments in research (including the structure and function of genes, gene therapy, drug development and medical diagnostics). BSc Biology (Molecular Biology) is part of a suite of biology courses, designed to offer choice and flexibility in the modules you study. There is a common first year that focuses on covering the fundamentals of biology so you have the option of changing pathway at the end of the first year. BSc Biology BSc Biology (Environmental Biology) BSc Biology (Biotechnology) Course highlights There are placement opportunities as part of this course leading to the potential for an internship in your third year. This may be completed in the summer or on day release. We will support you with sourcing the best placement or internship for you and making your application Our science facilities provide the next generation of scientific instrumentation for molecular analysis post the genomic era - in line with the focus in scientific research on protein-hunting rather than gene-hunting Our Centre for Investigative and Diagnostic Oncology has undertaken ground breaking cancer diagnosis and therapy, giving you access to cutting-edge advancements in the field Academics within the Natural Sciences Department use molecular biology to carry out research in genetics, cancer treatment, drug development, ecology, evolutionary biology, conservation and aquaculture As a student of this course you'll receive a free electronic textbook for every module.
