Months of entry
Chemical Biology is an emerging discipline that sits at the interface of traditional chemistry and biology.
It draws on the tools and ideas of modern physical sciences and applyies them to the solution of biological problems at the molecular level.
This is a discipline that is perfectly poised to address the next great challenge in biological science – to understand how gene products are used in and interact with the cellular environment.
The research element provides physical scientists with the ability to bridge disparate fields and gain the confidence to grapple with biomolecular research in a multidisciplinary environment.
The programme is run by the Institute of Chemical Biology’s Doctoral Training Centre.
You can apply for a one-year stand-alone MRes course or a four-year programme (one year MRes followed by a three-year PhD).
