Course Summary

Join the exciting, fast and interdisciplinary field of Translational Medicine and use cutting-edge research to develop new medicines, diagnostic tools or community practices.

MSc: Become a self-reliant scientist

Completing our MSc will help you develop into a confident and self-reliant scientist with extensive knowledge and understanding of translational science. You’ll be equipped for both academic study at a doctoral level, as well as for a career in research and development.

Our postgraduate courses in Translational Medicine equip graduates with expertise in bench-to-bedside pathways, genomic diagnostics and data analysis.

The MRes emphasises research and prepares you for transition to a PhD-level programme or to work in research and development in a pharmaceutical or biotechnology setting.

By providing practical research experience and training in drug development, genomic diagnostics and data analysis, our Translational Medicine MRes equips you with skills that are in great demand in the life sciences sector.

Access career pathways

The pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries have helped us design the programme. This means you’ll be equipped with expertise in the relevant bioscience and bench-to-bedside development pathways. You’ll also gain technical knowledge to prepare you for a PhD-level programme and to participate in research and development in pharmaceutical and biotechnology settings.

Address the skills shortage

According to the Association of the British Pharmaceutical Industry, there is currently a skills shortage in translational medicine which requires complex understanding to bridge the gap between bench and bedside.
