Months of entry
This MRes prepares you as a bridge scientist, able to work in multi-disciplinary teams to translate scientific innovations into beneficial health programmes in vulnerable communities world-wide. The programme will give you high-level introductions to key considerations in translational research for global health and to the various contributing methodologies. You will receive core training in quantitative, qualitative, and translational methods, with options available in subjects such as geospatial data technology and geostatistics, infectious disease models, health economics and bioinformatics.
Who is it for
Applicants are expected to have a first degree in a relevant subject (or equivalent experience as agreed by the course director), or be an undergraduate clinical student wishing to undertake an intercalated Master’s degree.
Four “core” modules will give you a broad introduction to quantitative and qualitative methods with a focus on global health. A choice of 3 “option” modules will then allow you to further your skills in areas such as advanced statistics, geostatistical and infectious disease models, health economics, and bioinformatics.
In addition, you will work on three individual projects of 40 credits each, on topics related to Global Health in the UK and overseas. UK projects are supervised at Lancaster University and Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. Overseas projects will be undertaken with our international partner institutions such as MLW in Malawi, Noguchi in Ghana, and Fio Cruz in Brazil.
