The Chemistry in Cells DPhil Programme

The Chemistry in Cells (CiC) 4-year DPhil Programme provides training for physical/chemical-sciences graduates to develop and apply quantitative physical science techniques to research at the interface with biomedicine. A highly multidisciplinary programme with collaborators at the University of Oxford, the Francis Crick Institute, The Rosalind Franklin Institute, GSK, Janssen and Merck, Sharp & Dohme (MSD UK), the course provides:

  • Fundamental training in biology, biochemistry, drug discovery.
  • Practical and theoretical research skills in computer programming, statistics and quantitative chemical biology.
  • Career development training in communication, presentation, writing/reading interdisciplinary literature.
  • Engagement with research in an industrially-relevant context.
  • A framework for the development of highly innovative multidisciplinary DPhil projects.
