This unique programme offers opportunities to study at UCL, Birkbeck College and MRC-NIMR. Students are exposed to a wide range of training in protein structure, chemical biology and the computational tools necessary to address important problems in biomedicine.

More information can be found on the Structural, Computational and Chemical Biology website, here.

Background

It is difficult to envisage modern research in molecular biology without strong computational, structural, and chemical biology components. In the era of ever expanding biological complexity, computational biology is crucial in making sense of the data. Similarly, structural biology provides essential insights into the molecular mechanisms presiding over biological processes. In turn, the chemical information provided by 3-dimensional structures can be exploited in the design of small molecule reagents which are valuable cell and molecular biology tools. The interplay between structural, computational, and chemical biology has brought some of the major scientific advances in modern biomedical research.

Programme Structure

This programme offers students the opportunity to do cross-disciplinary research in world-class institutes. The four year structure comprises intensive training together with the opportunity for short projects in all three disciplines in the first year. This provides an excellent platform for progress in the research project in years 2 - 4.
