Course summary

Research in the School of Biosciences revolves around understanding systems and processes in the living cell. It has a strong molecular focus with leading-edge activities that are synergistic with one another and complementary to the teaching provision.

Conduct cutting-edge research under the guidance of leading experts in cell biology leading to a career in industry or academia. You are trained in state of the art cross-discipline techniques including Transmission and Scanning Electron Microscopy, Confocal Microscopy and Atomic Force Microscopy. Your research will contribute to a range of fields including cancer and ageing, cellular architecture and dynamics, infectious diseases and evolution, reproduction and genome organisation.

Study for the MSc degree, a one-year research project (Full time), can also be undertaken as a two-year project (Part time). In all our research degrees you undertake a single, focused, research project from day one, and attend only certain components of our transferable skills modules. Our research degree students are supervised by supervisory teams which comprise their main supervisor(s) as well as supervisory chairs that give independent advice on progression. The MSc culminates in the submission of a written research dissertation and oral viva voce examination. Additionally, you present your results at the annual Postgraduate Symposium in July.
