Summary

 

MSc Journal Club (PG) - BIOE97031

Aims

 The journal club helps students to develop two key skills: to read research papers and to develop critical thinking.

Role

Course Leader

Engineering in Cancer Therapy - BIOE97057

Aims

This module explains the basic physics of ionising radiation as safely implemented in radiotherapy, provides an overview of the range of applications in the treatment of patients with ionising radiation and, highlights and models the biological processes involved the interactions of ionising radiation and tissue

Role

Lecturer

Synthetic Biology - LIFE96035

Aims

 Background & Aims: The advent of the molecular biology age in the 1970s was brought about by the ability to construct recombinant DNA molecules. This has completely revolutionised biology and enabled the development of ‘synthetic biology’, where new gene arrangements can be constructed and evaluated. This has been tremendously successful, leading to a wide range of biotechnological applications. However, the engineering of useful synthetic biological systems is still undertaken on an individual ad hoc basis, which is expensive and inefficient. Synthetic biology as a discipline is now attempting to apply the principles of engineering and develop foundation technologies that make the design and construction of engineered biological systems easier, facilitating future development in biotechnology. This course will explore the challenges, problems and approaches to engineering biological systems. 

 

Role

Lecturer

Foundations of Synthetic Biology - BIOE96046

Aims

This module will enable students to understand the principles of genetic engineering, synthetic biology and the design of biological machines. This includes the modelling of the biological system and the concepts and principles of synthetic biology.
