About

A biochemical approach forms the basis for understanding the function and properties of molecules, cells, tissues and whole organisms, under normal and abnormal conditions and in response to their changing environment. The Biochemistry program is offered by The University of Manchester .

Overview

About our PhD and MPhil degrees

PhD/MPhil Biochemistry programmes at The University of Manchester  are based on individual research projects that last three to four years (PhD) or one to two years (MPhil), working with a specific Primary Supervisor and Co-Supervisor(s).

Applicants are specifically matched with a Primary Supervisor and individual project based on their research interests and background.
