The mechanics of life: discover the molecular machinery that lies at the heart of the cell and drives all living organisms. At Worcester, we look at the fascinating world of biochemistry from a variety of angles. The core of our course explores the biochemistry of human health, from the processes that cause cancer to the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. There are also opportunities to extend your learning in to other areas, such as plant biology and microbiology, depending on your specific interests. There is even the chance to get hands on with real immortalised human cells in the lab.
