Course content

Research strategies include overlapping themes in biochemistry, food safety and nutrition, microbiology and parasitology, with a broad research ethos that encompasses research in molecular biosciences from molecules to ecosystems.

This diverse array of interests, ranging from biochemistry, food safety and microbiology to parasite control, is linked by common approaches within the molecular biosciences that are aimed at exploiting the ongoing genomic, transcriptomic/proteomic revolution. The molecular microbiology component is heavily involved with QUESTOR, a successful international industry/Queen's University co-operative research centre.

The food safety and nutritional research elements are linked within the Institute for Agri-Food and Land Use which aims to exploit cutting-edge technologies to drive a competitive and sustainable agricultural sector.
