Course Summary

The contribution of inflammation and immune dysfunction to a wide range of diseases, from arthritis to cancer to obesity is becoming increasingly clear. The aim of this programme is to provide students with a holistic understanding of the science underlying the body’s Immune System (Immunology) and how the immune system causes Inflammatory Diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Asthma, Multiple Sclerosis and Cardiovascular Disease. Many graduates from this programme pursue a career in biomedical sciences often via PhD research, satisfying the demand for qualified research personnel in inflammatory disease research.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

  • Receive training, advanced lectures and tutorials in modern cellular and molecular immunology by globally recognised experts.
  • Opportunities are available to work with scientists, clinicians and pharmaceutical industry scientists on research and drug discovery to driving improvements in patient care in areas of critical international importance.
  • Attend the UK Congress of Immunology.
  • Help to identify new pathways by which inflammation can promote diseases and ultimately create better medicines for patients at the GLAZgo Discovery Unit, a unique facility established between the Respiratory, Inflammation, Autoimmunity Medicines Unit at AstraZeneca and the Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation.
  • Be part of finding new approaches that predict which treatment works best in Rheumatoid Arthritis through the Arthritis Research UK (ARUK) Experimental Arthritis Treatment Centre which recruits local patients to test new and existing drugs.

CAREER PROSPECTS

The programme provides an ideal grounding for progression to further research studies in immunology, inflammation and infectious diseases, or for a career in pharmaceutical/bioscience industries.

Our graduates have gone on to take up careers/routes in the following:

  • PhD study
  • pharmaceutical industry research and development
  • research technologist
  • graduate research assistant
  • healthcare scientist
  • scientific publishing
  • scientific management.
