Course summary

Research overview

Your research degree is bespoke at the University of Nottingham, and allows you to choose your own area of interest to research, under the title of your choosing.

Our Microbiology, Molecular Biology and Biochemistry grouping is made up of the following available PhD and MRes courses:

  • Fungal Biology
  • Molecular Microbiology
  • Molecular Biology
  • Biochemistry
  • Molecular Biosciences
  • Biomedical Sciences

Our supervisors in the school are at the forefront of research in their fields. Utilising industry standard facilities, along with cutting edge equipment, and the guidance of our supervisors, you will advance the area of life sciences that interests you.

Your degree and research area is bespoke to you, however, here are some examples of the research we already conduct within the Microbiology, Molecular Biology, and Biochemistry fields:

  • Understanding the molecular mechanisms used by microbes to cause disease and how the host immunity works to defence the host against them
  • Investigating how we can best tackle the rising danger of anti-microbial resistance
  • Studying the biochemical basis of disease states
  • Investigating eukaryotic gene expression and vertebrate embryogenesis, including aspects of the development of the nervous system
  • Understanding the biology of fungi in relation to their stress responses and to their interactions with their environment in general, as well as with the use of fungi as cell factories for the production of proteins and pharmaceuticals

The school encourages students to present their own original research as abstracts and verbal and/or poster communications within the school and at national and international scientific meetings.
