Masters degrees in Bio-Organic Chemistry develop an advanced understanding of the structure and function of natural organic compounds (particularly carbon molecules).
As research is continually developing in the field, research-oriented MRes and MPhil programmes are most popular, though taught MSc courses are also available. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, such as Biochemistry or Chemical Engineering.
You will explore the principals of biological systems through an examination of their structures, synthesis and kinetics. Practical training is also provided in techniques such as bioinformatics, bioimaging and lab testing, screening and data analysis.
Both organic and non-biological molecules may be explored, with consideration given to their uses in industry to create and improve products for human consumption. This may include drug design and pharmaceuticals for controlling disease, the study of human nutrition, renewable energy, and commercial enterprises such as nanotechnology and polymers.
Roles within this field can either include frontline product development, or strategic roles such as management and legislation. Your technical knowledge would make you an expert in your field and suitable for roles in consultation and policy-making for both corporate businesses and government agencies.
