The Industrial Physical Biochemistry MRes course was a great opportunity to advance my knowledge and laboratory skills from my undergraduate studies. The research element of the MRes helped me decide and prepared me for undertaking a PhD, additionally my research was included in a couple of published research papers. Undertaking the MRes at the NCMH introduced me to new biophysical techniques including Analytical Ultracentrifugation (AUC), SEC-MALS and Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS), which have been essential experimental procedures during my PhD. One important element for me was attending the taught modules which kept that student feeling, in addition was the trip to the world leading Diamond Light Source which led to me undertaking a PhD at the facility thanks to the skills learnt during the MRes.
The IPB (Industrial Phys Biochem) course was great because it provided the opportunity to me upskilling on life sciences whilst adapting to my professional life. I was able to use a research topic that was 100% relevant for my company and I was able to keep the research confidential for two years so my company’s IP was not compromised. The modules were an excellent opportunity to recover the contact with academic research and university life, and I believe there was also flexibility on which modules you could choose!
