  • Course description
    Programme content

    Analytical bioscience - the investigation of biomolecules as exploitable biomarkers - is a growing field, driven by improving analytical methods with increasing sensitivity. Following completion of the Human Genome Project, the pharmaceutical industry is preparing for a revolution in cancer and inherited disorder therapies. This programme is training a new generation of bioscientists to meet challenges at the interface between biology and chemistry, and to apply pharmaceutical and analytical knowledge directly to improve quality of life.

    Topics to be studied include:

    -Separation Science
    -Spectroscopy and Spectrometry
    -Structural Bioinformatics
    -Proteomics and Microarrays
    -Drug Discovery, Design and Development
    -Research Skills
    -Advanced Mass Spectrometry
    -Identification of Important Natural Products
    -Anticancer Drugs and Chemotherapy

    A supervised research project forms the subject of the dissertation.

    The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, workshops, seminars, guided reading and may include industrial visits.

    Assessment
    Assessment is by a combination of written examinations, oral presentations, coursework, laboratory reports and presentation of the dissertation.

    Career progression
    Although particularly relevant to those looking for a career in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, this programme will also equip students for a career in research, teaching and many other professions in which biology and chemistry are important components. These include cosmetic science, animal health, food science, medical laboratory research, patent law, scientific journalism and health and safety. More than 70% of our graduates become employed in bioscience, with companies such as AstraZeneca and the Paterson Institute for Cancer Research, or carry on to doctoral studies
