Course summary

This MRes in Structural Molecular Biology provides in-depth training of all major structural molecular biology techniques including its applications in drug discovery. In the post-genome era, there is a wealth of information about the genomes of many organisms, including humans. The next challenge is to assign and understand the functions of the final genome products proteins, in particular to understand at the molecular and biochemical level, the functions of disease-linked proteins and proteins that carry out our basic life processes. This course provides students with the knowledge of all macromolecular structural determination techniques.

This full-time programme lasts for one academic year. You complete two 20-week research projects during the year – the first in the autumn term and the second in the summer term. The projects provide practical experience of laboratory research and opportunities to gain a wide range of skills in Biological nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, Macromolecular structure-function and structural bioinformatics, Cryo-electron microscopy and X-ray crystallography. Alongside individual study, you attend class-based lectures, computer labs and research progress meetings. You also present and discuss your work at lab meetings with your current research project and will have regular meetings about progress with your supervisors. This is an ideal training course for students looking to pursue a career in the field.
