Why Chemical Biology?
Chemical Biology is an emerging discipline that sits at the interface of traditional chemistry and biology. It draws on the tools and ideas of modern Physical Sciences (e.g. Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Engineering) and applies these to the solution of biological problems at the molecular level. It is a discipline that is perfectly poised to address the next great challenge in biological science.

The MRes in Chemical Biology will train students in translational multidisciplinary research through a bespoke training and research programme. Students will be armed with an in-depth understanding of product development pipelines across a variety of sectors, acquired through first-hand experience of multi-disciplinary translational research and early stage commercialisation. This will enable them to become leaders of technology innovation and translation in the life science, personal care and agri-science industries.

Tuition fees and scholarships
There are opportunities to gain scholarships in a competitive fashion. These will provide funding towards tuition fees and/or living expenses and will be granted on the basis of academic merit and excellence of the applicant.
