Course Summary

This course provides state-of-the-art practical training in modern molecular and cellular pharmacological techniques alongside their application to in vivo methods of pharmacological investigation of inflammatory and vascular disease mechanisms. The programme will deliver scientists adept in the crucial skill set needed for successful careers in UK Life sciences especially deeper phenotyping in vascular and inflammatory research, for example in rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis, pulmonary hypertension, hypertension, arrhythmia, nephrology or cancer.

In particular this course is designed to provide a springboard for those individuals wishing to a PhD in this field of research. This programme will: Give you state-of-the-art practical training in modern molecular and cellular pharmacological techniques, specialising in inflammation; Develop the skills you need to conduct biomedical inflammatory research; Enable you to contribute to the research culture and knowledge base in healthcare; Provide a solid basis for further study.

In the first term you will follow an initial three-month course of lectures, tutorials, problem based learning sessions (PBLs) and practicals to obtain a broad grounding in inflammation/vascular mechanisms, and to develop the necessary laboratory skills for conducting the project element of the programme which follows. In the following two terms, you will apply a variety of techniques as part of an integrated research project under the guidance of an experienced academic supervisor from the pool of the internationally renowned faculty within our institution. Students are assessed by oral critique of the literature; problem based learning group discussions; and research project thesis.
