About Biomolecular Chemistry
Masters degrees in Biomolecular Chemistry provides advanced postgraduate training in the chemical science of biological materials at the molecular level. It includes theory, practical techniques and research modelling, from the micromolecular to the macromolecular level.
Programmes range from taught MSc courses, to research based MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Chemistry, Biochemistry or Chemical Engineering.
Training is consolidated within a range of molecular modelling techniques, such as catalysis and spectroscopic (electromagnetic radiation) analysis. You will employ simulation methods such as 3D modelling to examine structures and their functions, for example cells and proteins.
Other practical training includes bioimaging, organic synthesis, data collection and bioinformatics. Techniques in this field may explore uses for nanotechnology, the development of drugs and pharmaceuticals, cancer treatment, and even renewable energy.
Career opportunities exist across many industries, from agriculture and veterinary science, to bioengineering and product design. Many graduates go on to pursue high-level strategic development roles, from management within commercial enterprises, to legislative positions in government departments. If academia is of interest to you, a Masters in this field is ideal preparation for a PhD.
