    Programme Description

    PhD programmes are based on individual research projects that last 3 or 4 years, working with a specific academic supervisor (principle investigators). Applicants are specifically matched with a principle investigator based on their research interests and background.

    As genome projects for animals, plants and microorganisms continue to advance, new opportunities arise which offer huge potential benefits in healthcare, agriculture and the environment, through the production of new drugs, novel crops and bioremediation. The Faculty houses the UK Centre for Tissue Engineering and there are strong links with industry. The Faculty is well placed to exploit emerging research opportunities with industry as the first purpose-built BioSciences Incubator is situated adjacent to the Faculty and is where companies which spin out from our basic research can be located. Research in Biotechnology is diverse, and the following represent just a few examples:
    Wound Healing,
    Injury and Repair,
    Cancer Biology,
    Arthritis Research,
    Appetite and Body Weight,
    Neurodegeneration & Movement Disorders;
    Animal Cell Biotechnology;
    Microbial Pathogenicity & Production of Therapeutics,
    Fungal Biotechnology & Protein Production,
    Genetic Engineering of Crops,
    Containment of Transgenes in the Environment,
    Bioremediation of Terrestrial & Aquatic Environments
