Course summary

Biochemistry is the study of the fundamental processes of life in a chemical context. Biochemists seek to answer questions about life events, health and disease, the natural environment, materials and compounds using scientific techniques developed in chemistry and biology. From an initial grounding in chemistry, genetics, cell biology, microbiology and human physiology, you will progress to an understanding of the complex biochemical processes that form the basis of the latest discoveries in the biosciences. One of the main advantages of all our Biosciences degree programmes is that you will be given a sound foundation in all the major aspects of biological theory, techniques and practice. To enable this you will have the use of the excellent facilities, in our new science building, for chemical and biomedical analyses, such as our stem cell facilities which have the capacity to grow new human cells. In addition, once you graduate you will be eligible for Associate Membership of the Royal Society of Chemistry. All biological graduates are eligible for graduate membership of the Institute of Biology.
