Course Summary

Overview

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. Important and innovative parts of the transferable skills students take part in include the following workshops "IP and Commercialisation (our own version of Dragon’s Den)", Demonstrator Training and “Writing a PhD Studentship”, as well as taking part in debates for public understanding of science.

Career prospects

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 Medical Sciences strand may involve up to three separate projects in different areas of medically relevant research, and so may appeal to students who do not wish to specialise in one single research area. The projects can be drawn from any of the wide range of research areas covered by staff within the Institute of Translational Medicine (ITM). Information on research project .
