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 stream provides an interdisciplinary training in analysis of ‘big data’ from modern high throughput biomolecular studies. This is achieved through a core training in multivariate statistics, chemometrics and machine learning methods, along with research experience in the development and application of these methods to real-world biomedical studies. You will gain experience of analysing and modelling data from multiple sources and applying it to biomedical questions. You’ll also learn how to implement statistical and machine learning techniques and use scientific thought when interpreting the results of data sets. Throughout the stream, you will develop communication, presentation and grant-writing skills. Students will become familiar with evaluating research reports through writing, presentations and seminars.

Our MRes in Biomedical Research 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. The course will equip you with the key skills needed to plan, conduct, publish and obtain funding for successful research. The programme offers training in a vast array of laboratories across the Faculty of Medicine (approximately 700 world leading research groups) and an opportunity to learn from leaders in the field.
