The MRes in
Structural Biology is an intensive, high quality, 1 year introduction
to research in Structural and computational Biology that are key to the
dissection of macromolecular “machines” and cellular pathways of
medical interest. The course comprises both taught components and
extensive research experience for students with backgrounds in the
biological, chemical, computational and physical sciences.
The Department of Biological Sciences
at Birkbeck College forms part of the Institute of Structural and
Molecular Biology and is a world leader in Structural Biology. Training
provided by the MRes is relevant to further academic research as well
as to a wide range of employers in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology
and chemical industries. The course is particularly suitable for
students who seek to combine a theoretical understanding of structural
and computational biology with research experience.
