Course summary

**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.**Between years two and three of this course we encourage students to complete a placement year, which is arranged with our support. Recent students have completed placement years at AstraZeneca, Kidscan and the Cancer Research UK Manchester institute. In our experience, final degree results and employability are enhanced for students who undertake a placement year. Additionally, this degree is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology for those that successfully complete a research-led placement year, positioning you well to develop your career in the field.At the University of Salford we pride ourselves on our research and have recently invested extensively in our facilities to ensure that our students are able to complete research projects that are exciting and inspiring, contributing useful findings to the field. Biochemistry is at the cutting-edge of research and is an exceptionally versatile scientific discipline with opportunities in the field continuing to grow and develop. This provides graduates of this course with some excellent prospective career paths and our programme will ensure that you are fully equipped to take advantage of them.Features• There are several areas of research to explore: 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, and toxicology • Newly refurbished and well-equipped teaching and research laboratories • Develop practical and advanced laboratory skills as you broaden your knowledge of key areas in the scientific industry, including marketing, health and safety, and legal issues
