About Molecular Microbiology at Faculty of Science, University of Strathclyde

You'll receive the highest-quality teaching in the leading Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences in Scotland by staff dedicated to your personal and scientific development.

This course will provide you with a comprehensive three-part postgraduate life sciences training.

First, unlike many MSc courses, we offer you dedicated training in a broad suite of practical laboratory skills.

Secondly, this is complemented by two unique classes that develop your transferable skills in statistics, presentations, career development, and ethics, as well as honing your science writing skills and your ability to design experiments and analyse sophisticated datasets.

Thirdly, our taught classes capture the excitement of cutting-edge research fields and you will be taught by active researchers or practising clinical professionals. There is a choice of classes that allows you to select a pathway to suit your future aspirations.

Our MSc Molecular Microbiology focuses on the molecular biology of important microbial pathogens and industrial microorganisms.

Students study the molecular mechanisms by which bacteria cause disease or can be exploited for the synthesis of biotechnologically important products.

The course content and research projects are driven by the expertise in microbial genomics, genetics and biochemistry research that exists within the institute.

State-of-the-art research facilities, such as our own genome sequencer, protein purification facilities, mass spectrometers and fluorescence microscopes means that students obtain first-hand experience in the latest molecular microbiological techniques.

Together, the course provides the perfect springboard to future training at PhD level or gives you a range of skills and experience that will prove attractive to employers from industry or the health-care provision sector.
