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.
The University runs several open days per year, in which Life Sciences take part.
The Faculty of Life Sciences also operates Faculty/campus tours which are available most days. These are with a student ambassador who will can tell you all about the Faculty and life at The University of Manchester. It may also be possible to meet with admissions staff (subject to staff availability). These tours are open to anybody thinking of applying to us for any of the Life Sciences. Family and friends are welcome too.To book, please contact the Faculty of Life Sciences Admissions Office on tel +44 (0)161 275 5032 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
