Course Introduction

Biochemistry is a pivotal degree discipline and a fundamental element of all the biological sciences. It focuses on the study of living systems at the molecular level, and the ways in which cells and organisms are formed. This involves examining the structure and function of molecules found in living systems, as well as experimental investigations of the properties of biological systems ranging in complexity, from cell extracts to whole organisms, and elucidating the roles of specific genes.

This course will give you the skills and knowledge to establish yourself in a range of careers related to biochemistry, including the pharmaceutical, diagnostic and biotechnology industries. The foundation of the course is our thriving research in diverse areas of biochemistry including biotechnology, cancer biology, membrane transport, molecular diagnostics and therapeutics, plant biochemistry, and protein structure.

In this degree you will gain a sound foundation in chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology and analytical biochemical techniques.
