Undergraduate Courses

The Department of Molecular & Cell Biology provides a rich and well-staffed environment for our students and we are one of three departments that contribute to the undergraduate (BSc) degrees offered by the School of Biological Sciences. We offer excellent teaching hosting around 40 energetic staff including top researchers, forming a coherent research community with established strengths across:

  • Structure, Dynamics and Assembly of Macromolecular Complexes
  • Single Molecule Approaches to Understanding Biological Systems
  • Mechanisms and Principles of Regulation of Gene Expression
  • Channels, Receptors and Signalling

We are most definitely a research-led university, and that means students enjoy a pivotal role in forging new ideas and technologies. Through our teaching Schools, members of the Department take an active role in ensuring our teaching is informed by frontline research. Our undergraduates will benefit from teaching from lecturers and tutors who are at the research cutting edge of the topics they are teaching.

All of the undergraduate degrees that we offer receive consistently excellent feedback from our students (e.g. through the National Student Survey) and through the various league tables published higher educational stakeholders and by national newspapers (e.g. the Guardian)
