Biochemistry is a scientific discipline with the ultimate aim of understanding life's processes at a molecular level. Broadly, it encompasses: the chemical nature and structure of biological molecules and how they interact with each other; complex cellular reactions and the generation of energy to power cellular activity; communication and co-ordination within and between cells; the replication, expression and repair of genetic material. Our teaching at Bristol is informed by a wealth of wide-ranging and cutting edge research ensuring our undergraduate students receive rigorous and relevant tuition. The school's research groups investigate some of the major challenges in modern biochemistry using problem solving approaches, ranging from a detailed examination of biological processes at the level of single molecules, to exploring the complex organisation of cells and whole organisms. International students who are offered a place on courses within the School of Biochemistry can apply for an Undergraduate International Scholarship.
