Course Summary

Stratified Medicine holds huge potential in the timely development of new treatments for human disease. It is among the most important concepts to emerge in 21st century clinical science and will be a crucial component of the global drive to increase the efficacy, safety and cost effectiveness of new treatments. This taught postgraduate Masters programme draws on the current and future needs of the Life Sciences sector, to create a highly skilled workforce. It harnesses Scotland’s strengths in Stratified Medicine, Clinical Trials, Bioinformatics and Pharmacogenomics to provide focused training which integrates basic and clinical sciences, and equips students with grounding in the essential skills required to design, execute and evaluate modern clinical interventions.

The programme will cover the principles which underpin the emerging science at the interface between genetics and pharmacology and the clinical evaluation of the resultant new medicines, taught by internationally recognised experts. The aim of this programme is to train researchers who can break down the barriers that currently prevent discoveries at the bench from being translated into treatments at the bedside. Students on the programme will undergo theoretical and practical training in state-of-the-art research processes available to researchers in Glasgow, enabling an appreciation of how to apply novel stratified approaches, together with clinical pharmacological, regulatory and ethical principles to the optimisation of future clinical research and therapeutic practice. Students will gain an understanding of statistical methods used to evaluate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of new treatments. This course provides excellent opportunities to engage with industrial and clinical scientists, with guest lecturers from the pharmaceutical industry, medical diagnostic laboratories and bioscience business which will help you understand the science, methodology and terminology used by scientists and clinicians from different disciplines. You will learn to communicate effectively in a multidisciplinary environment, critically evaluate a wide range of scientific data and research strategies and learn how to make a signi

Students will gain an understanding of statistical methods used to evaluate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of new treatments.

University information

The University of Glasgow is one of four ancient universities in Scotland, founded back in 1451. The university is part of the prestigious Russell Group, and is one of only two universities in the UK to be awarded a 5 Stars Plus by the QS University Rankings 2017. Alumni include seven Nobel Prize winners, Scotland’s First Minister and a Prime Minister, while Albert Einstein gave a lecture on the theory of relativity there back in 1933. The...more
