What will I learn?

Biochemistry and Molecular Biology offer an understanding of the biological and chemical processes that allow life to thrive, giving us the tools we need to solve key challenges in cell biology, pathology, pharmacology, physiology, and genetics. Advances in these fields have revolutionised our knowledge of how biological systems work at the molecular level and the mechanisms that underpin a wide range of cellular processes. This enables us to respond to a range of human health problems and diseases through interventions at the molecular and biochemical level. Our MPhil/PhD is designed to enable students to develop their research skills by focusing on a specialist set of research questions. Students can benefit from training courses provided by the University to develop key skills in research. Under the guidance and advice of their PhD supervisors, students will be encouraged to present talks and seminars on their work both at the University of Lincoln as well at national and international meetings and conferences. Under the guidance of your PhD supervisors students will also be expected to produce progress reports, develop their ability to write up work for publication in peer-reviewed journals, and ultimately to effectively communicate their research and thesis. Beyond learning how to conduct research and the specialist skills that students are expected to develop within their subject discipline (e.g. how to work in a molecular laboratory or conduct animal cognition experiments), the process of studying for a research degree can provide transferable skills in problem-solving, time management, independent and team work, and communication.
