Biochemistry has become the foundation for understanding all biological processes. The knowledge and methods developed by biochemists are applied to all fields of medicine, in agriculture and in many chemical and health related industries. Biochemistry is also unique in providing teaching and research in both protein structure and function, and genetic engineering, the two basic components of the rapidly expanding field of biotechnology.
The BSc Pharmaceutical Science and BSc Biochemistry programmes with 1 year placement are accredited by the Royal Society of Biology. Accreditation is dependent upon successful completion of this placement.
Research areas in which you can participate in include: nanotechnology, drug design and repurposing, cancer and antimicrobial research, natural products, biomarkers, analytical detection of volatiles, mass spectrometry, computational studies, skin modelling, lung diseases, biotechnology, toxicology and much more.
We are bringing the industry to you by integrating contributions and perspectives from industry experts, meaning that you will be well prepared for life after university as well as being more employable.
Please note that it may not be possible to deliver the full list of options every year as this will depend on factors such as how many students choose a particular option. Exact modules may also vary in order to keep content current. When accepting your offer of a place to study on this programme, you should be aware that not all optional modules will be running each year. Your tutor will be able to advise you as to the available options on or before the start of the programme. Whilst the University tries to ensure that you are able to undertake your preferred options, it cannot guarantee this.
