Course description

Have you ever wondered about the basic chemistry of life? Biochemistry is the chemistry of the substances and processes occurring in living cells and tissues. This subject forms the basis of virtually all of the life sciences, and many exciting discoveries made in this area have contributed to our understanding of life, the solving of medical problems, and to the discovery and production of safe and effective drugs.

Our course at Manchester is broad in scope, with topics including: the structure of biomolecules, and how they interact in essential processes and pathways in our cells; the actions of enzymes, and how they can be inhibited by drugs; and genetic engineering and molecular biology.

Open days

The University runs several open days per year, in which we take part.
