Our research makes use of a wide array of facilities such as multi-photon and laser scanning confocal microscopes for the study of cells and tissues at the molecular level, high-field nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers and X-ray diffractometers for the study of molecular structure, mass spectrometers, liquid and gas chromatography systems, and fluorescence and electron microscopes.

Examples of careers that you could enter include:

  • Biotechnology
  • Medical biochemistry
  • Medical or industrial research
  • Brewing and food industries
  • Science patenting
  • Teaching
