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.
Fees for entry in 2017 have not yet been set. For entry in 2016 the tuition fees were £9,000 per annum for home/EU students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2017 entry.
