Course summary

The Microbiome in Health and Disease course 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. The microbiome stream is aimed at students with a biochemical, microbiological or biological background interested in pursuing further education in microbiome and nutrition in health and disease, understanding fundamental mechanisms behind disease processes and developing therapeutic targets. It is also for students with a clinical background interested in understanding microbiome in clinical research. This course is designed for students looking to pursue a career in biomedical research, whether in academia, industry or government. The overwhelming majority of graduates, who have wanted to continue on to PhD study, have done so.
