MSc - Master of Science
The MSc in Experimental Medicine offers advanced research training in a broad range of laboratory based biomedical sciences.
The MSc in Experimental Medicine is designed for students wishing to pursue a career in experimental medicine, whether it is in academia, clinical practice, industry or government. The programme will also provide an excellent platform for progression to PhD programmes either in Queen’s or worldwide.
The MSc in Experimental Medicine will develop a strong fundamental understanding of high quality biomedical research, including experimental design and execution, data management and interpretation, and scientific communication, including publishing, presentation, and use of social media.
The programme offers comprehensive research training with access to over 57 research groups and the state-of-the-art research facilities at the Wellcome Wolfson Institute of Experimental Medicine (WWIEM). Research facilities include Central Technology Units for Imaging and Genomics which are leading the way in research excellence and innovative healthcare.
Experimental medicine aims to identify mechanisms of pathophysiology of disease, and demonstrate proof-of-concept evidence of the efficacy and importance of new discoveries or treatments. There is an increasing need for graduates who can undertake basic and clinical research, and translate it into improved medical treatments for patients.
This research-intensive MSc programme in Experimental Medicine will equip you with the rigorous research skills, and the innovative mentality to tackle the major medical and therapeutic challenges of the 21st century.
You will have an opportunity to obtain a formally accredited certificate of training in good clinical practice (GCP) via the Inflammation, Infection and Immunity module. Students working with animal models of disease will also receive official training in animal handling, leading to a UK official animal handling personal license.
