Course summary

Omics describes a range of analytical techniques (including genomics, metabolomics, proteomics etc.) that are essential contributors to the understanding of human disease and to the development of personalised therapeutic strategies. You will learn detailed knowledge and practical skills required to understand, process and integrate multiomics data, preparing you for a broad range of careers in healthcare and/or industry, or further research (e.g. a PhD).

The complexity of multiomics data requires multidisciplinary knowledge and capacity to integrate information in order to answer medical or scientific questions.

This MSc will provide both the knowledge and the practical training required to analyse genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and phenomics data, in addition to the skills to prepare, carry out and present the results of research to a variety of audiences.

Careers

The skills developed during this programme will form a solid platform for further development and specialisation for a career in academic and industrial research, clinical medical genetics, and bioinformatics. There has been an increased demand for skilled professionals who understand omic technologies within the healthcare industry. Possible career paths include working in large pharmaceuticals, innovative healthcare start-ups or at the newly developed NHS Genomic Medicine Services; or pursuing further research via a PhD.

Employability

This programme belongs to the Division of Medicine, which brings together clinical and basic scientists undertaking world-leading interdisciplinary research and teaching. Our close links with UCL Genomics Centre (the core facility for genomic technologies for the entire UCL), major hospitals and industry, will allow students to carry out significant research projects.
