This course provides training in the methodological aspects of biology, which are important in many areas of drug discovery and design such as treatment for cancer and inherited disorders. The interactions between potentially harmful chemicals and living organisms at the molecular and cellular level are also investigated. The course also investigates the possible sources of error in experimental and instrumental analysis, thus allowing the correct interpretation of experimentally-derived scientific data.
An Honours degree in chemistry, biology or a related subject. Equivalent qualifications from international students.
Modules: fundamentals of analytical science; data treatment and analysis; advanced separation techniques; advanced methods for organics; biochemical methods; practical; molecular medicine; molecular and cellular toxicology; project.
Modules are mainly assessed by assignments, problem-solving exercises, assessment of laboratory skills and written examinations. The research project is assessed by written report and oral presentation.
ESF funding covering fees and a bursary for EU students.
