The course aims to explore and understand every aspect of the structure and function of living things; a biochemical approach forms the basis for understanding the function and properties of molecules, cells, tissues and whole organisms, under normal and abnormal conditions and in response to their changing environment.
A 1st or 2.1 Honours degree, or the overseas equivalent, in a relevant subject; 2.2 Honours degree supplemented by appropriate relevant experience may be acceptable; IELTS 6.5, TOEFL 577 (paper based), TOEFL 233 (computer based) or TOEFL 90 (internet based) required.
Research areas include: Cell membrane and cell wall structure and function; intracellular trafficking of proteins and organelles; regulation of metabolism in health and disease; protein structural analysis and relationship to protein function; transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells; cellular recognition and interactions; protein secretion and post-translational processing; molecular analysis of cellular stress responses; signal transduction and intracellular signalling mechanisms; macromolecular assemblies and cell function.
Assessment is by a research project.
A large number of funded PhD places are offered annually via the UK Research Councils; other studentships may be available through charities, internal funds and some industry- sponsored awards.
