Course summary

The 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.

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 specialist stream provides research training in fundamental aspects of:

  • bacterial pathogenesis
  • host immunity
  • the microbiota
  • antibiotic resistance and persistence

The emphasis is on molecular approaches to understanding infection, immunity and antibiotic susceptibility at the host-pathogen interface. This research-orientated approach to training in biomedical sciences comprises both theoretical and practical elements. Through two five-month research projects and a series of lectures and technical workshops, you will be exposed to the latest developments in bacterial pathogenesis, host immunity, antibiotic resistance and the microbiota by applying technologically advanced approaches to biomedical research questions. In addition, we focus particular attention on the scientific and professional acumen required to establish research independence.
