Masters (MRes) in Plant Chemical Biology run at Imperial College London: Multidisciplinary Research for Next Generation Agri-Sciences

This multidisciplinary Masters in Research course can be taken as a one year course (full-time), or as a two year part-time course. It will equip you with the skills to tackle problems that lie at the plant/physical science interface on a molecular level. Chemical Biology through physical science innovation will lead to the development of novel technologies, vital to overcome future global challenges such as the food, fuel and fibre needs of our growing population.

Students will get training from both academic and industrial leaders in the plant and chemical biology fields. Advances in understanding biomolecular processes have often depended on the collaborative efforts of biochemists, chemists and physicists. This course will enable students to bridge the gap that can exist between the physical and plant science disciplines because of differences in ‘language’, perspective and methodology.

There are a number of funded bursaries and scholarships available for this course, which are open to both UK/Home as well as overseas students.

For full details, including how to apply please see the website.

If you have any questions regarding the course please contact the course directors, Dr Laura Barter ( or Dr Rudiger Woscholski ( for further information.
