Multidisciplinary training to tackle challenges in the healthcare, personal care and agri-science sectors

We train physical sciences graduates in the skills and arts of multidisciplinary research through a combination of taught courses which introduces them to the biomolecular sciences, and research. Click here for more information on the molcular targets our current students work on.
The Institute of Chemical Biology (ICB)'s mission is to support and develop multidisciplinary research crossing the physical sciences-life sciences/biomedical interface.In particular we focus on the development and application of novel tools and technology for solving major problems in the life and biomedical sciences.
