PhD Chemistry (Bionanointeractions)

Our thematic PhD Chemistry in BioNano Interactions is under the auspices of the Centre for BioNano Interactions and the supervision of its Director, Professor Kenneth Dawson. This four-year research programme combines laboratory work with 30-credits of taught modules. Taught learning is taken from a suite of modules in modern genomics, proteomics, cytometry, and imaging technologies offered by the Conway Institute and other related disciplines in Science and Engineering. The programme advances the application of bionanointeractions to the fields of nanosafety, nanobiology and nanomedicine.


4 years full-time.
