Course Summary

The twelve month, full-time programme is structured to allow for 3 hours lectures per week whilst the rest of the time is spent in the lab or carrying out other research project related work. MRes in Biomedical Sciences & Translational Medicine students undertake 3 research projects that comprise 10 weeks of lab work followed by 2 weeks in which to write a report. Students also present either a poster or talk at the end of every research project. During the project, all students are encouraged to suggest experiments, design experimental protocols, as well as being taught subject specific techniques and advanced knowledge in transferable skills. The research projects will include at least three different research techniques to enhance experimental training skills that need to be clearly stated at the end of each project.

The lectures relate to state-of-the-art research techniques, application of knowledge in scientific and clinical areas, and the development of personal and professional transferable skills. The MRes in Biomedical Sciences and Translational Medicine provides students with high level research training within the five research departments contributing to the programme. The programme is divided into 13 strands and students choose a strand that matches their research interests; this then becomes the over-arching area of their research projects.

Careers: The MRes in Biomedical Sciences & Translational Medicine provides students with a first class grounding in research training. Students are well placed to continue on to PhD studies, work in industry, or to apply for postgraduate entry medicine or dentistry.

Modules

The Cellular and Molecular Physiology strand covers a wide range of different research areas, from fundamental studies of cell biology to translational work on mechanisms of disease. Despite this diversity, the various research areas share a common aim in trying to understand complex physiological phenomena at the cellular and molecular level. Students in this strand are therefore allocated research projects that maximise their skills in key techniques to address this, such as molecular biology, protein biochemistry, calcium imaging, genetics, microscopy and electrophysiology.
