Translational research in medicine is an exciting and rapidly developing interdisciplinary field. It focuses on taking new research findings from the laboratory and other research contexts, and using them to develop effective advances in healthcare as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our Translational Medicine modules are ideal for people with a relevant undergraduate degree who want to train for a career in translational research or related fields, for medical students who want to obtain a postgraduate degree during an intercalated year, and for clinicians and other professionals who want to develop their expertise. Completing our MSc will help you develop into a confident and self-reliant scientist with extensive knowledge and understanding of translational science. You’ll be equipped for both academic study at a doctoral level, as well as for a career in research and development. The programme has been designed with input from the pharmaceutical/biotechnology industry and will equip you with an expert understanding of the relevant bioscience, ‘bench-to-bedside’ development pathways and with the technical knowledge that will prepare you to progress to a PhD-level programme or to participate in research and development of a pharmaceutical/biotechnology setting.
On the MSc, you will study 7 taught modules, and then complete a 3-month research project. The MSc course will equip you for academic study and a career in research and development.
