Course content

This programme focuses on the integration of structural biology and bioinformatics approaches in order to understand the activity of proteins, including enzymes, antibodies and receptors, at a molecular level. This understanding provides a platform for techniques such as structure-based drug design, biocatalysis and protein engineering, which are the basis for many recent advances in biotechnology.

The MSc programme is designed for students who wish to specialise further in a particular field or wish to change direction from their first degree (in a related area).
