The Chemistry - Chemical Biology specialisation from Uppsala University has been developed in cooperation with world leading research groups in this field at the university. The specialisation is partly taught together with the specialisation in Biochemistry, but provides more in-depth advanced aspects of current synthetic chemistry, chemical biology and associated experimental techniques. You will have lecturers who are leading experts in, e.g., organic synthesis, spectroscopy, enzymology, X-ray crystallography, systems biology and protein engineering.
Your studies will combine theoretical knowledge and practical skills in organic chemistry, biochemistry and interfacing disciplines such as nanobiotechnology, and drug design. It includes the physical and chemical foundations to be able to take part in the research of the complex regulation of cellular signal transduction, cross-talk between proteins and possible linkage to diseases.
With a Master's degree in chemical biology you will have a relevant background to primarily the life sciences and can hold key positions in addressing future challenges such as clean and efficient production of solar fuels, new routes for green chemistry, as well as new pharmaceuticals and vaccines.Possible career paths can vary. You may work with research and development, production processes, analysis of materials, management of safety and legal issues, patenting of inventions, marketing and sales, or environmental and sustainability issues.
