Biochemistry with Molecular Biology and Biotechnology

This course immerses you in groundbreaking research and gives you the opportunity to contribute to work that could have a significant impact on future generations. It offers a breadth of topics, allowing you to choose your specialism whilst developing your knowledge and research skills. In your first two years you will supplement your study of biochemistry with units relevant to molecular biology and biotechnology. Recent options include fundamentals of molecular microbiology, disease and defence, and infection and immunity. Your third year introduces specialist, cutting-edge aspects of biochemistry such as synthetic biology, DNA-protein interactions and protein science in therapy and technology. Your final-year research project will involve collaboration with internationally renowned scientists on pioneering work. Our students recently collaborated on the development of a technique for the manufacture of red blood cells from human stem cells, and on the molecular modification of an antibiotic, increasing the range of infections it can treat. We prepare you for your future career with subject-specific employability and enterprise sessions and the chance to gain additional research experience in a summer studentship.
