Biological Sciences (Biochemistry) - University of Leicester

Unpicking the biochemical processes that make all living things (and viruses) tick is the first step to understanding the mechanisms that define life. Welcome to the fascinating and diverse world of biochemistry. The basic principle of biochemistry is that the processes of living things can be explained by the properties and interactions of the molecules from which they are made. On this course you will work alongside leading biochemists who are investigating some of the most important questions in biochemistry research in order to gain insight into the mechanisms of life. Biochemists study these processes in all types of organisms and discover how errors in them can cause disease, and they help discover how biomolecules work across the biological sciences. On this course you will gain a broad understanding of fundamental biological processes, while developing analytical skills and gaining experience in handling complex information. By studying biochemistry alongside options in other biological sciences, you will be able to apply your knowledge across the boundaries of traditional disciplines and gain a valuable and powerful asset in scientific environments and in many other walks of life.
