What if you could do do a Masters with the very best professional researchers? Imagine having access to a cutting edge lab.

Our programme in Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research gives you this opportunity. What’s more, it gives you the skills needed to have a real impact upon biomedical research.

Your future in biomedical science awaits.

This programme is aimed at those intending to undertake a PhD. It provides a broad and balanced foundation of biomedical research skills, including knowledge and practical experience in other natural science disciplines that enable the student to undertake an interdisciplinary PhD project at the end of the MSc course.

You will attend modules in statistics, imaging, mathematical or molecular modelling, physical biology etc., plus a series of masterclasses led by experts in the areas of cellular dynamics, molecular microbiology and applied medical technologies. During the third term and summer terms you will conduct two eleven-week research projects in two different disciplines.

Teaching is through lectures, seminars, practical workshops and laboratory-based research projects. The course is assessed in a number of ways, including reports, research projects, poster and oral presentations, and written and oral examinations.
