Applications are invited for a one year Masters course in Synthetic Biology

hosted by The Department Biochemical Engineering at UCL.

Synthetic biology is the engineering of biology: the synthesis of complex,

biologically based, or inspired, systems which display functions that do not exist

in nature. The rational and systematic design of biology may help us to address

the major challenges of the future.

The course has been designed and run by Professor John Ward, UCL.

This one year, full time Master of Research (Mres) course includes:

MRes in Synthetic Biology

•  Taught course in Synthetic Biology

•  Research Skills

•  Critical analysis of the Scientific Literature

•  An extended Research Project.

In the few years since this exciting discipline has been established there is

already a major success in the production of anti-malarial drugs from

microorganisms designed using Synthetic Biology.

Future possible applications of Synthetic Biology could include the engineering of

new bio-fuels, new medical applications, synthetic metabolic pathways for fine

chemicals, nanoscale biological computers, new approaches to cleaning up

dangerous waste and sensitive biosensors for health or security applications.

Research projects in these areas are available.
