Program description

University of Pretoria Master Programs

Biochemistry, PhD

Biochemistry, originally developed as a small crossover field between Biology and Chemistry, has matured over the years into an autonomous discipline that focuses on the molecular aspects of Biology. It shares techniques and interests with many other Life Sciences such as Microbiology, Pharmacology, Genetics, Medicine, Veterinary Science, Virology, Physiology and Food Sciences, but still retains firm links to Chemistry and Physics. In this sense, Biochemistry is the central discipline of all natural sciences. At the University of Pretoria, the Division of Biochemistry focuses on molecular aspects of Diseases of Poverty including HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria as well as antimicrobial peptides. It also lays a strong emphasis on Structural Biology and Tea Research.

Admission requirements

Candidates must have obtained 60% or more for a MSc (Biochemistry) or equivalent degree. Alternatively, the Head of Department may provide a recommendation for admission to the Faculty Board.
