Course summary

Antibiotics are one of the greatest medical achievements of the 20th century, which have helped save the lives of millions, but overuse and misuse of antibiotics in agriculture and medicine have given rise to a growing number of bacteria with antimicrobial resistance. By 2050, it is estimated that 10 million people worldwide will die per year as a result of being infected with such bacteria. St. George’s is one of the first universities to offer a unique specialist pathway to support important research into antimicrobial resistance. This MRes in Biomedical Science (Antimicrobial Resistance) prepares you for research that will lead to better understanding of the molecular basis and mechanisms of microbial resistance to treatments and ultimately to improvement of drug regimens and combinations that could circumvent resistance.

Modules

On the Antimicrobial Resistance pathway you will be taught the essentials of conducting high quality research through a range of core modules, and will gain a detailed knowledge of antimicrobial resistance before undertaking your research project. The MRes is made up of 180 credits. All modules are compulsory, and will equip you with the skills and knowledge to conduct high quality research.
