Cell Biology focuses on the fundamental unit of life, taking you on an exploration of the cellular and subcellular worlds that underpin modern biology. Cell Biology is key to understanding how organisms develop, how they respond to their environment and how the diseased state differs from the healthy state.
Recent advances in cell biology are enabling cell biologists to:
- understand the basis of diseases in humans, animals and plants
- develop novel treatments and therapies for diseases
- explore the processes associated with ageing
- improve the quality and quantity of important food crops
- develop novel and sustainable fuels
- assess the impacts of environmental changes on biological systems
Our course offers you unique and flexible interdisciplinary training from staff whose knowledge is constantly refreshed by their active research work.
As you study, you will develop a thorough understanding of Cell Biology that will give you the choice to progress to more advanced and specialised topics. You will be given the support and encouragement to develop your passion and ideas for your research project where previous Stirling students have excelled in producing high-quality work. We will also make sure you will have the skills and work-placement experience to kick-start your career in Cell Biology.
