Our MSci Medical Biochemistry course will enable you to achieve an integrated master's degree while you study for a BSc, giving you significant research experience that will be invaluable for a PhD and a career in research.
You will study the functioning of normal and diseased organisms from a biochemical point of view, receiving a fundamental grounding in the principles of biochemistry.
As you progress, optional course units may show you how biochemistry allows us to understand and treat diseases. Subject areas include the molecular biology of cancer, cell cycle control and genetic diseases.
In Year 4, you will undertake a major research project in one of the University's more than 200 research labs to achieve your undergraduate master's award.
This course is designed for biochemists considering a career in research into the biochemical basis of disease and therapeutic medicine.
