University of Nottingham
Biochemistry and Cell Biology
The course consists of a combination of research skills training provided by the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences Postgraduate Training Programme, together with supervised independent research, leading to completion of a PhD or a Master's by Research (MRes) thesis; the School encourages students to present their own original research as abstracts and oral and/or poster communications within the School and at national and international scientific meetings; current research focuses on the molecular mechanisms of growth, development and adaptation in both health and disease; the techniques employed include molecular biology, cell culture, microinjection, proteomic analysis, microarray screening, advanced imaging techniques, molecular structure determination and modelling; most of the research is conducted in vitro or in tissue and organ culture; increasingly, the school expects to use computational analysis and simulation; one of the research groups is especially dedicated to developing alternatives to animal experimentation; the school is heavily involved in the use and development of genomic, proteomic and imaging technologies in 2 of the technology clusters of the University (Post-genomic Technologies Cluster and Imaging Cluster).
