Our MSci course is ideal if you want to continue in research or to stand out when applying for a PhD. In your first year you will gain a broad understanding of the biology of normal and cancerous cells. In addition to studying the immune system, you will take pathology, microbiology and biochemistry units. In the second year you will study the cellular and molecular basis of cancer and its therapy as well as autoimmune diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, diabetes and arthritis, and human cancers caused by viruses, such as papilloma and hepatitis B. You will take molecular genetics and an optional unit, possibly biochemistry, from a selection offered. All practical teaching in years one and two is supported by the eBiolabs dynamic laboratory manual. You will progress to undertake a research project or scientific dissertation, working in a research or teaching laboratory in our Biomedical Sciences building or in one of the hospitals. Your work may even be published in scientific literature. The additional, fourth year includes an extended research project and advanced research skills training with an emphasis on enterprise. You will plan projects, communicate with a variety of audiences and learn to translate and commercialise research. The School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine focuses on turning science into medicine and these courses aim to launch you into a research career with an emphasis on translational research.
