Cardiff University

Many recent and continuing developments in medicine have been underpinned by biochemical research; for example, the development of targeted cancer therapies, the exploitation of stem cells and RNA-based therapies, and the appreciation of the importance of protein mis-folding in neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and CreutzfeldtJakob disease.

The Intercalated degree in Biochemistry provides you with the opportunity to join a research-led course in this highly relevant and rapidly advancing subject.
