PhD programmes are based on individual research projects that last 3 or 4 years, working with a specific academic supervisor (principle investigators). Applicants are specifically matched with a principle investigator based on their research interests and background.
Biochemistry aims to explore and understand every aspect of the structure and function of living things. A biochemical approach forms the basis for understanding the function and properties of molecules, cells, tissues and whole organisms, under normal and abnormal conditions and in response to their changing environment. Examples include:
Cell Membrane and Cell Wall Structure and Function
Intracellular Trafficking of Proteins & Organelles
Regulation of Metabolism in Health & Disease
Protein Structural Analysis & Relationship to Protein Function
Transcriptional & Post-transcriptional Regulation in Prokaryotic & Eukaryotic Cells
Cellular Recognition & Interactions
Protein Secretion & Post-translational Processing
Molecular Analysis of Cellular Stress Responses
Signal Transduction & Intracellular Signalling Mechanisms
Macromolecular Assemblies & Cell Function
