Want to play your part in a field of science that’s made major contributions to the development of new drugs and the treatment of diseases? Our Medical Biochemistry with Research Placement degree is designed to give you a great grounding in biological sciences while boosting your career prospects across the pharmaceutical industry, healthcare and, especially, medical research. Groundbreaking work in biochemistry has led to our knowledge of the structure of DNA, RNA and proteins and it holds the promise of further breakthroughs in treatment in the future.
- This course has advanced accreditation by the Royal Society of Biology.
- If you’d like to focus on building your research skills in this dynamic area of science, then choose this version of our Medical Biochemistry BSc(Hons) course which includes a research placement during your third year.
- From day one you’ll be building your own knowledge and skills to develop a firm foundation in the molecular and cellular aspects of biology and the principles of drug action. As your studies with us progress, you’ll begin to focus on disease processes in modules such as epidemiology and pharmacology, paving the way for investigating more advanced topics such as molecular medicine and metabolic disease in your final year.
- You'll focus on theory and also gain practical, hands-on experience. In the lab sessions you’ll be able to get to grips with industry-standard equipment and in your third year, you can try out your skills for real during a supervised research placement.It’s all designed to help get you ready for a successful career beyond graduation.
- As a student on this course you’ll be able to apply for undergraduate membership of the Biochemical Society and The Physiological Society (UK). You’ll also be eligible for student affiliate membership of the Royal Society of Biology and upon successful graduation be eligible to apply for one year associate membership, this can help open up networks at a crucial time when applying for jobs.
