Course summary

The Institute of Biological Chemistry, Biophysics and Bioengineering (IB3) is focused on applying advances in the chemical, physical, and engineering sciences to enable and enhance life science research. The MPhil interdisciplinary research interests of the members and the state-of-the-art facilities provide a unique, stimulating environment for integrative research. Life scientists, physicists, chemists, engineers and mathematicians work together to enhance the acquisition of data and maximise the information extracted from it. We run and participate in major training, research and access networks including the Edinburgh Super-Resolution Imaging Consortium, the Multiplexed “Touch and Tell” Optical Molecular Sensing and Imaging Interdisciplinary Research Centre, as well as collaborative projects to grow synthetic blood from stem cells, new diagnostics, foetal DNA separation technologies, cancer biology, diabetes, high-speed bio-imaging and analysis and 3D printing of stem cells. IB3 brings together biological chemistry, biophysics and bioengineering in one research institute. Research at the interfaces between quantitative biological research and the physical sciences and engineering is recognised as a strategic priority area for EPSRC, MRC, BBSRC, STFC and the Welcome Trust and we are in receipt of substantial funds from these agencies. When you study with us, you will join a highly interdisciplinary team that exploits the best facilities and technologies to provide solutions for the biomedical questions of tomorrow.
