Course summary

The School of Life Sciences is a vibrant research environment which provides a focus for biological and biomedical research at the University of Nottingham.

Research overview

The wide-ranging interests and expertise of academic supervisors means that research projects are available from single molecule analyses though to studies at the level of whole organisms, and multi-disciplinary research and training is strongly supported in this environment.

For a PhD in biochemistry, projects encompass studies of fundamental biochemical mechanisms as well as the biochemical basis of disease states.

Research facilities

The school is well equipped for contemporary research projects in the biochemistry area with state-of-the-art DNA sequencing and cell imaging facilities.

Affiliated research centres include:

  • BBSRC-funded Synthetic Biology Research Centre
  • MRC Centre for Musculoskeletal Aging
  • Centre of Membrane Proteins and Receptors (COMPARE)


Our PhD students are highly employable and find many opportunities both within academic research and the biotech and pharmaceutical industries.

Training in transferable skills means that graduates are not limited to pure science careers and some students go to find opportunities in education, commerce, scientific writing and patent law.
