This postgraduate degree will provide you with advanced research training in medical aspects of cell biology and pathology through the completion of your own lab-based research project.
With a focus on research methods, you will take your skills to the next level in producing your own research design, and developing your understanding of ethics in research projects and best practice in handling statistical datasets. The programme includes a variety of subject-specific lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical work that will keep you up-to-date with the current advances in the field. You will learn the theoretical and technological aspects of cellular biomedicine and their practical applications within industry.
You will be taught by enthusiastic research-active experts in the field who conduct research in a diverse range of topics that you can choose to study such as cellular and molecular mechanisms of cancer, microbial resistance to antibiotics, immune mechanisms of disease, stem cell research and molecular modelling in cell biology.
You will conduct your research project in our state-of-the-art laboratories equipped with microscopy analysers, autoradiography, flow cytometry, high sensitivity HPLC and LC-MS, and neural stem cell and tissue culture facilities.
