Course Introduction

This course provides a multidisciplinary approach to understanding disease mechanisms, with emphasis on a broad range of training from structural and chemical biology to clinical applications. The programme provides an excellent background in biomedical research, and will integrate chemical, biological and physiological aspects in a unified approach. This course teaches a mechanistic approach to the problems encountered in molecular and cellular biomedical science. It also emphasises an investigative and empirical approach to the practical problems encountered in experimental and human biomedical science. You will acquire an understanding of modern molecular and cell science in world class biomedical research laboratories through both theory and practical exposure. That emphasis provides knowledge across the biological scales from atoms, molecules to whole cell/organisms on pressing human diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, metabolic and cellular disease as well as pathogen infection and resistance. This stream is for students with a biochemical or biophysical background interested in pursuing further education in a medically relevant area, and those with a biomedical background interested in understanding fundamental mechanisms behind disease processes. Our MRes in Biomedical Research is designed for students looking to pursue a career in biomedical research, whether in academia, industry or government. The overwhelming majority of graduates, who have wanted to continue on to PhD study, have done so. The course will equip you with the key skills needed to plan, conduct, publish and obtain funding for successful research.
