Course summary

The Cambridge Stem Cell Institute is a world-leading centre for stem cell research with a mission to transform human health through a deep understanding of stem cell biology. Our scientists study stem cell behaviour, both normal and pathological, and use their findings to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. Our Institute consists of 28 outstanding research groups, working across three key research themes: Stem Cell States, Stem Cells in Disease and Stem Cells & Therapeutics.

The Institute offers this one-year full-time MPhil programme of research under individual supervision of a principal investigator. During their MPhil, the students are based in a research group, supported by their primary supervisor and a Postgraduate Education Committee and Postgraduate Student Committee. MPhil students write a thesis, which is examined via an oral examination.

The MPhil course introduces students to research skills and specialist knowledge. Its main aims are: to give students with relevant experience at a first-degree level, the opportunity to carry out focused research in the discipline under close supervision; and to give students the opportunity to acquire or develop skills and expertise relevant to their research interests.
