"The MRes course in Molecular Biophysics was extremely beneficial as it allowed me to expand both my practical skills as well as scientific knowledge through a combination of lectures, supervised practical classes and providing hands on experience with cutting edge techniques and high-end procedures."
"The programme introduced the interdisciplinary field of biophysics where physical tools are used to investigate biological problems. the specialised lectures gave an in depth insight into the current cutting edge biophysical techniques such as NMR, X-ray diffraction and super-resolution microscopy and their application in application in understanding biological structures and systems. I thoroughly enjoyed being part of the renowned Randall division and this experience proved pivotal in my subsequent decision to undertake a PHD."
“I read Biochemistry as an undergraduate at King's and was delighted to stay on at the Randall for the MRes in Molecular Biophysics. The lectures and practicals gave me a thorough grounding in experimental biophysical techniques. I did my project with Dr. James Mason on computer simulation of antimicrobial peptides. This provided me with the opportunity to develop my computational skills and to apply for a computational PhD programme. I am currently in my first year of a DPhil in Computational Biochemistry at the University of Oxford. I would highly recommend the course to prospective students because it teaches a range of skills and techniques in an interdisciplinary manner which is useful to any scientific career.”
“I feel that the MRes in Molecular Biophysics was an important part in my academic development.
After completing my undergraduate in Genetics, I became interested in more interdisciplinary work. This MRes program provided a fantastic balance between teaching core Biology and Physics concepts in the first 3 months. During this time we usually had very small class sizes and direct interactions with Randall staff, which provided a great learning environment.
For my research project I decided to take the opportunity and work at one of King's partner Universities, the National University of Singapore (NUS). I ended up spending approximately 8 months there, and while it was at times stressful and difficult, I would highly recommend the experience. I ended up working on a project involving Electron Microscopy. The National University of Singapore had incredible facilities and resources. I also had strong support from the King's College while in Singapore.
I would say going to Singapore is one the best decisions I made and I still have close friends years later from my stay there. Overall I feel that the MRes in Molecular Biophysics provided me with a lot of knowledge, experience, and opportunities.”
