Oxford has one of the largest Biochemistry departments in the world, carrying out world-class research and teaching.

The Courses

Wadham considers applications for the DPhil and MSc(Res) in Biochemistry, details of which can be found on the website of the Department of Biochemistry. It also admits doctoral students studying on the Wellcome Trust-funded programmes in Stuctural Biology, Chromosome Biology, and Infection, Immunology and Translational Medicine offered by the Medical Sciences Graduate School, as well as researchers working in the various Centres for Doctoral Training across the University (advisors will not necessarily be Biochemistry Tutors).

For additional programmes in the molecular biosciences to which Wadham admits students, see the Medical Sciences and Biological Sciences pages.

The Tutors

Prof Ben Berks

Ben's research interests are protein transport, microbial energy metabolism, bacterial cell biology and membrane protein structure/function.

Dr Paul Elliott

Paul investigates how ubiquitin, a small protein which as its name suggests is ubiquitous, functions to control nearly all cellular processes. He utilises structural biology methods including nuclear magnetic resonance, X-ray crystallography and cryo electron microscopy, to investigate how ubiquitin functions as a complex code within cells.
