This programme provides a thorough understanding of key approaches for studying biological processes at the molecular level. It takes advantage of XJTLU’s advanced English-language capabilities, distinctive international features, and state-of-the-art research facilities. It covers biotechnology-related topics such as molecular biology, protein biochemistry and drug discovery, as well as post-genomic biology (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and bioimaging), and bioinformatics (the acquisition and statistical analysis of large-scale biodata).
It also places a major emphasis on providing project management skills. After completing taught modules you will on an in-depth research project and a specialised dissertation. Customised individual learning plans are designed for you in keeping with your backgrounds and career aspirations. Successful completion of the programme leads to the award of an MRes degree from the University of Liverpool.
Our department has internationally respected investigators in the field of molecular bioscience research and excellent teaching and laboratory infrastructure. You will have the opportunity to carry out world-class research in a dynamic, transnational environment.
