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.

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

NB: Due to a change in the organisational structure of the University, this course as of August 2016 this course will be in the new School of Biological Sciences within the Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health. In the interim period, you will be redirected to the current Faculty of Life Sciences webpages for further details on this course.
