MRes Protein Structure and Function


Course Description

MRes Protein Structure and Function

MRes degree programmes are designed for graduates who are contemplating a research career and who may go on to study for a PhD or to a position in industry involving interaction with research scientists. The programmes provide a unique mix of taught components, extended laboratory projects, literature reviews and preparation of a grant proposal based on a research dissertation. They give students an insight into a range of state-of-the-art research activities and techniques, and provide generic, transferable skills training needed for all early stage researchers. The programmes also address the scientific, ethical and commercial context within which the research takes place.

All of the MRes programmes can be studied as the first year of our Integrated or New Route PhD programme.
The MRes in Protein Structure and Function involves the integration of structural biology and bioinformatics approaches in order to understand the activity of proteins, including enzymes, antibodies and receptors, at a molecular level. This understanding provides a platform for techniques such as structure-based drug design, biocatalysis and protein engineering, which are the basis for many recent advances in biotechnology.

Commonly chosen units include:
Enzymology
Protein synthesis, folding and turnover
Enzymes: mechanisms, evolution and control in integrated biological systems
Enzymes in biotechnology & medicine
Structural biology in biotechnology & medicine
Molecular Immunology
Cellular biochemistry
