The theme tackles fundamental and applied questions to deliver advances in medical and industrial biotechnology.
Our research ranges from fundamental properties of biomolecules to molecular and metabolic engineering, novel detection and diagnosis methodologies, and therapeutic discovery and design.
The theme develops new products and solutions that we seek to apply, through collaboration and direct commercialisation.
Expertise in the theme includes:
We have strong links with other Departments within the University, including Chemistry, Pharmacy & Pharmacology and Physics within the Faculty of Science, and Chemical Engineering and Electronic & Electrical Engineering within the Faculty of Engineering & Design. We also have substantial industrial collaborations.
Members of the theme are affiliated with the Centre for Biosensors, Bioelectronics and Biodevices (C3Bio), Centre for Integrated Bioprocessing Research (CIBR), Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (CNAN), Centre for Sustainable & Circular Technologies (CSCT), Centre for Therapeutic Innovation (CTI), and Cancer Research at Bath (CR@B) at the University.
Research areas include:
There are opportunities for postgraduate research throughout our group. Interested students are encouraged to contact academic staff directly or check our PhD projects on FindAPhD.com.
