Course summary

Overview

With an emphasis in advanced quantitative methods, the MRes in Global Health: translational research and quantitative skills is designed to develop your multi-disciplinary knowledge and skills relevant to translational research for global health. This MRes prepares you as a bridge scientist, able to work in multi-disciplinary teams to translate scientific innovations into beneficial health programmes in vulnerable communities world-wide. The programme will give you high-level introductions to key considerations in translational research for global health and to the various contributing methodologies. You will receive core training in quantitative, qualitative, and translational methods, with options available in subjects such as geospatial data technology and geostatistics, infectious disease models, health economics and bioinformatics.

Course structure

This course is for students with scientific backgrounds who are interested in furthering their skills around health questions globally. In particular, this course suits graduates with quantitative, life sciences, or clinical degrees. The MRes is based at Lancaster University, though project work is supervised in conjunction with Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and other international partner institutions. On graduation, our students will possess highly sought-after skills in international health policy advice, government/non-government public health research, and health data science.
