Studies in this discipline are available in both the

Study the structure and function of components of living cells, to understand the biological processes that enable all living things to survive and thrive.

The structure of complex biomolecules, particularly proteins, is closely linked to their role in the cell, so solving structures can provide valuable information about normal processes and how they change to cause disease. The understanding of how DNA and proteins interact has led to benefits ranging from more effective treatments for cancer to improved agricultural practices.

You will study broad biological processes as well as more specialised topics drawn from structural biology, molecular cell biology, molecular parisitiology and cancer. You will learn how to uncover the molecular processes of life and how this knowledge can be applied in medical science and biotechnology.

Careers

You can use your knowledge of biochemistry and molecular biology to pursue employment in the following areas:

  • Medical and pharmaceutical research
  • Biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries
  • Agriculture
  • Medical support industries
  • Intellectual property.

You can also work on the development, production and marketing of biochemical consumables and equipment, or on policy making in government departments.
