Course summary

Biochemistry is the molecular basis of life. It applies chemical principles to some of the most exciting problems in the life sciences, explains how drugs work, helps us understand what goes wrong in diseases and enables 'genetic engineering'. Consequently, the subject is essential to drug discovery, biotechnology and biomedical research. Biochemists investigate the structures, functions and biological roles of molecules involved in metabolism, cell signalling and the transmission of genetic information. In addition to the BSc Honours, we now offer students the opportunity to study for an MSci Honours degree, which is an integrated, undergraduate Masters degree, aimed at high-achieving students who are considering careers in biochemical research.
