The Department's buildings are currently open for wet laboratory work only. We have carried out a comprehensive COVID-19 risk assessment process and have introduced a number of new measures to ensure the safety of our staff, including reduced building occupancy, strict social distancing, 'family'-based working, and increased cleaning and hygiene regimes. All staff who can work remotely will do so for the foreseeable future. Please continue to contact us by email until further notice.

Department of Biochemistry



This is the part of our web site for current postgraduate students. Here you can find copies of important documents.  There will also be links to other useful sites including Moodle, where lectures slides are kept and you sign up for your first-year practical sessions.  You may also request access to other Moodle sites to access resources from some other types of courses.

When you have your Raven password you can login (top right corner) to access all the information and links in the Intranet for members of the Department. You use the same password for Moodle and many other University sites.

You will also receive information by email from the Department and via the Postgraduate School email list. If you think you are not receiving information that other students are receiving from the Department, please let Christine Thulborn know. See the Contacts link below. If you are not receiving Postgraduate School newsletters you can see what to do on the Postgraduate School website.
