Course Overview

Specialise in respiratory and cardiovascular science and build your biomedical research skills on this Master's course.

You'll analyse the basic physiology of cardiac function, as well as the pathophysiology of major cardiovascular diseases and major respiratory diseases.

This specialised MRes Biomedical Research stream examines the advantages and limitations of animal models of respiratory and cardiovascular disease.

You'll also explore the rationale behind the design of novel treatments for respiratory and cardiovascular disease and develop your research expertise on two extended projects.

Extensive theoretical and practical skills training will prepare you for employment roles within a biomedical environment, on a programme that incorporates 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.
