Our programme will provide you with a comprehensive grounding in the fundamental principles and recent advances in the field alongside mechanisms underpinning the major pathological processes. Our students build their knowledge of modern technologies used in diagnostics and research to solve complex problems related to disease investigation required to progress their own research. Students develop practical skills to carry out experimental research and the critical evaluation and analysis skills required for literature reviews; assessing essential facts, concepts, principles and theories; legal requirements for human experiments and ethical issues relating to research with human subjects and human tissue relevant to your research.
Modules: biomedical ethics and law; experimental design and statistics; laboratory leadership and management; research project.
