Biological Chemistry

Biological chemistry research, including structural and chemical biology, has its epicentre in the York Structural Biology Laboratory (YSBL). Work focuses on the fundamental chemical bases for biological and biochemical processes, the use of small molecules to probe cellular biology, software and methods development and on the exploitation of enzymes in biocatalysis. Research projects can be carried out in virtually any area of chemistry as long as a suitable project and supervisor can be allocated meaning you can specialise in your own specific area of interest. You will work under the guidance of an academic supervisor who is expert in that particular field, and alongside other members of the research group including academics, post-doctoral researchers as well as fellow postgraduate students. To be considered for postgraduate study you need to submit a formal application.

Sponsorship information

A range of scholarships and studentships are available at postgraduate level. Some scholarships are funded by the University (such as the York Master's Opportunity Scholarship) and some are funded by Research Councils, alumni, businesses and charities. Please check with the provider for details.
