Course description

Medical biochemistry addresses the functioning of normal and diseased organisms from a biochemical point of view. Our courses will provide you with a fundamental grounding in the principles of biochemistry, such as protein structure and function.

As you progress, optional course units may show you how biochemistry allows us to understand and treat diseases. Subject areas include the molecular biology of cancer, cell cycle control and genetic diseases. You will spend your third year on a placement with one of our partner organisations in the UK or overseas.

These courses are designed for biochemists considering a career in research into the biochemical basis of disease and therapeutic medicine.

This programme has been accredited by the Society of Biology and is currently the only Medical Biochemistry course in the country to be recognised in this way. Accreditation is awarded to programmes that demonstrate the highest standards in the biosciences and provide graduates with the skills for academic and industry careers.
