Course summary

The MSc by Research in Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics provides students with a wide range of research topics within a large multi-disciplinary and world-renowned department, spanning a diverse spectrum of research areas from neuroscience, cardiac science, ion channels transporters and signalling, metabolism and endocrinology, development and reproduction to functional genomics. You will conduct your research at Oxford under the supervision of academic staff who are at the forefront of developments in your chosen research project area. You will explore your research subject area to new depths and have the opportunity to present your findings to members of the international scientific community with whom, one day, you may collaborate with. At the end of your study with us you will produce a doctoral thesis that represents a significant advance in the field. You will have become a world expert in your research area, and you will have demonstrated that you are an original and creative thinker capable of independent scientific work at a very high level.

You will be encouraged to submit termly reports on your progress and report courses undertaken. The Supervisor will also contribute to the termly reports. You will also be encouraged to transfer your status towards the end of the first year and then defend a final viva and be awarded a MSc by Research. An alumni survey in 2013 showed nearly two-thirds were employed in academic research or had returned to medicine in conjunction with academic research. Other careers include industrial research, teaching, scientific publishing, patent law and banking. A few graduates enter charitable fundraising, charitable scientific employment and pharmaceutical consulting positions.
