Course summary

Overview

Our one-year full-time course provides broad training to prepare you for a career in biomedical research. The programme provides an excellent background in biomedical research, and will integrate chemical, biological and physiological aspects in a unified approach.

This course teaches a mechanistic approach to the problems encountered in molecular and cellular biomedical science. It also emphasises an investigative and empirical approach to the practical problems encountered in experimental and human biomedical science.

Study programme

The course is made up of a general stream and number of specialist streams. All of our biomedical research streams have the same course structure. The taught elements and research project are determined by your chosen stream. Over 12 months, you complete two five-month research projects (4.5 days per week) and a core programme (0.5 days per week) including grant writing, technical workshops, journal clubs and transferable skills. The research projects incorporate cutting-edge developments in the field. You will experience some of the most technologically advanced approaches currently being applied to biomedical research.

This is the general stream within MRes Biomedical Research. It is aimed at students who are undecided on the area or field they wish to enter after graduation. You will develop a background of biomedical research, covering all chemical, biological and physiological aspects. There is a focus on applying an investigative and empirical approach to some of the practical problems encountered in experimental and human biomedical sciences. You will also gain theoretical and practical knowledge to prepare you for a career in a variety of biomedical environments. This stream provides you with the opportunity to undertake research training with experienced teaching staff in one of the world's leading biomedical research institutions. The Faculty are internationally respected scientists within research groups that are working at the cutting edge of biomedical science research.
