Course Overview

Receive the training required to embark on a career in biomedical research on this Master's course.

This general stream of the MRes Biomedical Research provides a thorough grounding in biomedical research, covering all chemical, biological and physiological aspects.

Appropriate if you are uncertain of the field of biomedical research you wish to go into, this stream provides training covering a broad range of techniques, rather than being discipline-specific.

You'll gain the theoretical and practical knowledge required to work in a variety of biomedical environments. These include infectious disease epidemiology, mathematical modelling and statistics, genetics and evolution, and computational methods.

You'll apply investigative and empirical approaches to some of the practical problems encountered in experimental and human biomedical sciences.

Your work will be guided by experienced staff in one of the world's leading biomedical research institutions.

Two five-month research projects will build your transferable skills through grant writing, technical workshops, and journal clubs.

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.
