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.

The Microbiome in Health and Disease stream focuses on the multidisciplinary approaches to understanding gut microbiome and developing new targets for disease prevention and treatment. You’ll perform novel laboratory-based research and learn to exercise critical scientific thought when interpreting the results. You’ll undertake two research projects and gain experience of developing research plans. By the end of the stream, you will be familiar with writing grant applications and will improve your writing, presenting and communication skills when defining research reports.
