What will I learn?

The one-year full-time course provides broad training to prepare you for a career in biomedical research. The programme provides an excellent background in biomedical research, and will integrate chemical, biological and physiological aspects in a unified approach. This course teaches a mechanistic approach to the problems encountered in molecular and cellular biomedical science. It also emphasises an investigative and empirical approach to the practical problems encountered in experimental and human biomedical science.

The course is made up of a general stream and number of specialist streams. All of our biomedical research streams have the same course structure. The taught elements and research project are determined by your chosen stream. Over 12 months, you complete two five-month research projects (4.5 days per week) and a core programme (0.5 days per week) including grant writing, technical workshops, journal clubs and transferable skills. The research projects incorporate cutting-edge developments in the field. You will experience some of the most technologically advanced approaches currently being applied to biomedical research.

This stream focuses on a unique medical speciality which involves hands-on manipulation of physiology and real-time pharmacological intervention to effectively and safely manage patients in all parts of the hospital. You will learn about the fundamental principles of molecular mechanisms. You will go on to study advanced physiology and pharmacology of anaesthetics, pain medicine and intensive care. By completing two research projects, alongside lectures, seminars, tutorials and technical workshops, you’ll gain a detailed knowledge of the facts, principles and theories in a particular subject area and learn research techniques and how to translate research. You will also develop key skills in communication skills, project design, and producing written and oral reports.
