MRes in Synthetic Biology

A new MRes course in Synthetic Biology from September 2010

Applications are invited for a one-year Masters course in Synthetic Biology hosted by The Department of Structural and Molecular Biology at UCL.
This one year, full time MRes will include:

• Synthetic Biology
• Research Skills
• Critical analysis of the Scientific Literature
• An extended Research Project


synth biology

Synthetic biology is the engineering of biology: the synthesis of complex, biologically based, or inspired, systems which display functions that do not exist in nature. The rational and systematic design of biology may help us to address the major challenges of the future.

The involvement of molecular biologists, biochemists, engineers, physical scientists, chemists, biologists, mathematicians, computer scientists are all needed in this emerging discipline. BBSRC funding is available for this course and we also encourage self-funded applicants from any of the disciplines above.

Enquiries and Administrative contact: Professor John Ward
