Course summary

Our MPhil Cell Matrix Research programme enables you to undertake a research project that will improve understanding of the interactions between cells and their extracellular matrix environment in the contexts of health, disease and tissue regeneration. Cells continuously sense, synthesise and remodel the proteins and glycosaminoglycans that form the Extracellular Matrix (ECM). This ECM varies in its biochemical and biophysical properties in different parts of the body, and cellular responses to these differences influence the motility, growth, differentiation and survival of cells. Therefore, cell-ECM interactions underpin the development of multicellular organisms and are essential throughout the life of an organism.

It includes: Learn from some of Europe's leading researchers while undertaking your own project; Access some of the best research facilities in the world at both the University and in hospitals around Greater Manchester; Undergo training in transferable skills critical to developing early-stage researchers and professionals through the Doctoral Academy's training programme. Your postgraduate research degree will open up a range of career opportunities after you graduate.
