Course Overview

Develop skills towards a career in biomedical research before specialising in bacterial pathogenesis and infection on this Master's course.

On this stream of the MRes in Biomedical Research, you'll build an appreciation of molecular approaches to understanding infection, immunity and antibiotic susceptibility at the host-pathogen interface.

Your training will explore both theoretical and practical elements of biomedical sciences, with teaching delivered through lectures and technical workshops.

Two research projects provide an opportunity to explore developments in bacterial pathogenesis and apply technologically-advanced approaches to biomedical research questions.

You have the option of choosing our general biomedical research stream, or one of eight specialisms. All of our biomedical research streams have the same course structure and each stream has its own tailored set of projects alongside a core programme of lectures, seminars and practical classes.

You should consider which stream is right for you according to your career aims and background. If an offer of admission is made, it will correspond to a specific stream. Switching streams is not possible once you have commenced your studies.

Is this stream for you?

This stream is designed for students who wish to pursue a career in bacterial pathogenesis and infection research, whether it be in academia, industry or government. To date, the vast majority of our graduates have gone on to study for a PhD.

This stream specialises in bacterial infection biology and is based within the Centre for Molecular Bacteriology & Infection (CMBI), which was renamed as the Centre for Bacterial Resistance Biology (CBRB) in Sep 2022. Please visit the CBRB website to find out more about group leaders and their research. Several other groups with interest in these topics also offer projects on the BPI stream.
