**About this course**
This degree offers you a comprehensive overview of biochemistry, from the atomic level to that of the whole body. You’ll explore bioanalytical techniques used in the biochemical and pharmaceutical industries, and research drug innovation and design, including antimicrobials and anti-cancer medicines.
You’ll investigate the molecular structures of living organisms and the processes involved in causing disease. You’ll explore how modern bioscience can solve some of the biggest health challenges we face. In Year 3, you may choose between Advanced Analytical Science and Clinical Chemistry and Haematology. You’ll also work on an independent research project in a specialist area which inspires you, either as a laboratory project or a systematic review.
