UCL (University College London)
The course focuses on the study of the whole bioprocess and the interaction between new biological discoveries and the novel engineering required for the formation, recovery, purification and formulation of biomaterials; targets include 'small' and macromolecules and cells; all 3 areas are progressing to greater complexity with, for example, metabolically-engineered antibiotics and chiral drug intermediates, antibody fragments, plasmid genes and engineered human tissue the subject of current studies.
At least a 2:1 Honours degree from a UK university or the equivalent from an approved overseas institution; or a UK Master's degree; recent industrial experience in place of academic qualifications is considered; evidence of numerical ability is requested as either an A level in mathematics (or in exceptional cases, in physics) or some mathematics studied at university.
Assessment is through thesis and viva voce examination.
Awards from BBSRC and ESF for research at PhD level. High-quality students will be supported in their applications for funding from external sources such as British Council and ORS schemes.
