Biosciences - MPhil


Course Description

Bioscience research at Newcastle is part of the Institute for Cell and Molecular Biosciences. We integrate traditional bioscience disciplines to investigate the steps from genotype to phenotype. Our research also incorporates chemistry, biophysics and eukaryotic-microbial models.

We offer MPhil supervision in all of our main research areas. You will join a vibrant research community of about 100 postgraduate research students in the Institute. You will work in one of our established research groups alongside postdoctoral researchers, senior students and staff. You will be encouraged to present your work in the Institute and at scientific meetings.

Our staff are successful in attracting postgraduate funding from diverse sources, such as:
-UK Research Councils, including a BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership
-Industrial CASE awards
-Charities
-UK and international government initiatives

Our results in the Research Excellence Framework 2014 were exceptional. We were ranked 1st for research output amongst all UK submitted university biosciences departments (UoA5 - Biological Sciences Unit of Assessment). In the overall scores, the Institute for Cell and Molecular Biosciences (UoA5) was 5th out of 44 UK submissions.

Our research is divided into four themes, each linked to a research group.

Facilities

Research in the Institute for Cell and Molecular Biosciences is supported by a wide range of facilities, including services and equipment for:
-Cell imaging
-High throughput technologies
-Bioinformatics and proteomics
-Transcriptomics and X-ray crystallography
-Proteomics and biological mass spectrometry

Underpinning our status as a world leading research institute was the construction of the Centre for Bacterial Cell Biology (CBCB) that was opened in 2010.
