Course summary

Our Molecular Biophysics for Medical Sciences MRes offers you the chance to learn about biophysics, molecular biology and bioinformatics, and to undertake an extensive research project. This course is excellent preparation for a PhD or a foundation for high-level entry into the industry.

Key benefits:

  • Possibility to carry out research projects in biophysics in Singapore.
  • Broad range of research topics to choose from.
  • Up-to-date biophysics expertise is increasingly valued by pharmaceutical and biotechnology laboratories.
  • Located in the heart of London.

Description:

This Molecular Biophysics for Medical Sciences MRes course will give you a thorough exposure to practical biophysics research in a world- leading centre that has been at the forefront of biophysics research since it opened 60 years ago. Our early successes include the elucidation of the structure of DNA and the development of the sliding filament model of muscle. More recently we have pioneered breakthroughs in the areas of muscle and immunoglobulin function, molecular-tweezers development, cell motility, DNA recognition, and the development of new techniques in cellular microscopy.

The research component of your MRes will be complemented by a series of in-depth modules in molecular biophysics and molecular biology.

Course purpose:

Acquiring quantitative skills in biology is of paramount importance for the next generation of professional scientists working in industry and academia. The MRes (Master of Research) in Molecular Biophysics at King's College London offers an integrated training programme ideally suited to learn biophysical techniques crucially important to meet this challenge.

We deliver an excellent foundation for students wishing to pursue careers in academic research. Equally, our MRes provides a robust foundation for high level entry into industry where biophysics has applications ranging from drug formulation and delivery, structure-based drug discovery, and the development of medical and scientific imaging techniques.

Our Master is designed for outstanding graduates in the Life and Physical sciences (Biology, Biochemistry, Chemistry, Physics) who want to apply their knowledge to biological problems at the research level. Taught modules cover biophysics and molecular biology techniques with elements of bioinformatics.

Career prospects:

Many of our graduates continue to study PhDs. Others transfer their skills and knowledge to careers in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry, cancer research, medicine, scientific administration within research councils and scientific publishing.
