Course summary

Build multidisciplinary skills in biomedical research on this Master's course, specialising in molecular mechanisms and structural biology. You'll explore fundamental disease mechanisms and the scientific methodology used to unravel these mechanisms. Broad training is provided in a range of biomedical research areas. These include structural molecular biology, biochemistry and biophysics, cell biology and clinical/pharmaceutical applications. You'll build transferable skills through a programme of grant writing, technical workshops and journal clubs. You'll also investigate disease pathways and potential therapeutic interventions on pressing human diseases. Two extensive research projects provide an opportunity to apply your expertise to areas of interest within this specialism. Choose your stream You have the option of choosing our general biomedical research stream, or one of seven 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. This stream is now closed for 2023 entry. Applications are still open for other MRes Biomedical Research streams.
