MPhil - Master of Philosophy
The Department of Cellular and Molecular Physiology builds on a long and prestigious history and remains a leading international centre for research into the fundamental principles of human physiology.
Laboratory research is based mainly on the University campus in the Henry Wellcome Laboratory of Molecular & Cellular Gastroenterology. We also conduct clinical research and trials at the Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen University Hospital.
Our focus is on “translational” research: taking advances in basic medical research out of the laboratory and into the hospital clinic ‘from the bench to bedside’. This involves a whole range of experimental techniques, from mechanistic studies involving cell-lines through to patient studies and clinical trials.
Our research interests
Investigations in humans and animals which define the biology of GI disease and provide the scientific foundation for the development of new or improved therapies.
Our research areas specifically focus on:
For this course (per year)
Students need to pay £25,950 for (lab based programmes), £20,400 for (non Lab based programmes) (2022).
Applications are welcomed from well qualified graduates who would typically hold a UK first degree or equivalent in the first or 2:1 class, or a 2:2 class degree plus a Masters degree, in a relevant subject. Applicants for postgraduate research study at Liverpool are normally expected to hold a UK first degree with a First Class or Upper Second Class degree classification, or a Second Class degree plus a Master’s degree. Equivalent international qualifications are also accepted, and their equivalence will be evaluated on the basis of the information provided by the National Academic Recognition and Information Centre (NARIC) as well as internal guidance based on our experience of a qualification’s suitability as a preparation for our programmes.
