Course Summary

The MRes Clinical Research - Human Vaccinology course equips you with the knowledge and skills to undertake valuable research within one of four distinct areas. The principal goal is to provide a thorough grounding in cutting-edge clinical research, with a strong focus on your chosen pathway. The programme provides a structured approach to developing knowledge and skills which will enable you to develop your own research portfolio or, more commonly, assist in the management of an existing portfolio. You will gain an understanding of research methodologies by studying in a world-leading research environment. These degrees provide knowledge and understanding of key topics including clinical trial design, the critical pathway for drug development, statistics, good clinical practice and critical appraisal. You will be equipped with management and communication skills, including problem-solving, project design, decision process, teamwork, written and oral reports and become familiar with scientific publications. The primary aim of the programme is to equip you with the theoretical aspects of supporting and managing clinical research. The careers open to graduates will vary depending on which pathway is chosen. Graduates have progressed to employment within research, for example clinical trials and the food industry. Others have continued careers and sought promotion within the health sector. A large number progress to PhD scholarships. These degrees are ideal for those wishing to progress to a PhD studentship or a research based role within the NHS. Some graduates have gone on to successfully secure a place at medical schools.
