IB3 brings together biological chemistry, biophysics and bioengineering in one research institute. Research at the interfaces between quantitative biological research and the physical sciences and engineering is recognised as a strategic priority area for EPSRC, MRC, BBSRC, STFC and the Wellcome Trust and we are in receipt of substantial funds from these agencies. When you study with us, you will join a highly interdisciplinary team that exploits the best facilities and technologies to provide solutions for the biomedical questions of tomorrow.
We pride ourselves on our supportive and stimulating environment for postgraduate students. In addition to academic supervisors, each postgraduate is supported by a mentoring scheme. We run a highly rated “Core Skills week” that brings new research students up to speed quickly to recognise the concepts, people and facilities they need to make progress from the beginning.
There is also a Postgraduate Association, which organises seminars, social events and careers advice, and provides a vibrant peer-to-peer support network for students. Funding is available to enable students to travel to present data at international conferences.
Examples of the types of research projects on offer:
- Development of light-regulated tools for biomedical research
- Super-resolution and functional imaging of ion channel molecular activity in living cells
- Microfluidic enrichment of donor DNA for detection of pancreatic islet graft rejection
- Development of cutting-edge downstream bioprocessing
