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.
