MRes in Synthetic Biology
The MRes in Synthetic Biology would like to attract students from a wide range of science backgrounds in both the physical, engineering, chemical and mathematical sciences as well as graduates from biology based science degrees and train them in the new field of Synthetic Biology. UCL holds one of the Networks in Synthetic Biology and has won funding from the BBSRC for 4 MRes studentships per year.
The objectives to reach this goal will be to teach the areas that make up Synthetic Biology which include engineering principles, mathematical modeling, molecular biology, biochemical engineering and chemistry. There will be a major research project where topics can be chosen spanning the expertise in 6 departments across UCL. There will also be training in Research Methods and in critically assessing journal publications in Synthetic Biology. The goal will be to train multidisciplinary masters students able to understand the new area of Synthetic Biology, be skilled in its practice and to be able to transfer these skills to further research, to industry and teaching.
