Course content

Do you want to be part of the UK biomedical translational agenda? Do you have the skills to take molecular concepts and apply them to in vivo studies? Are you interested in finding out why inflammation is at the root of society's modern diseases such as heart disease and cancer? Do you think you might like to do a PhD but lack all the necessary skills? If these are some of your thoughts about your future, then this is the programme for you.

This course provides state-of-the-art practical training in modern molecular and cellular pharmacological techniques alongside their application to in vivo methods of pharmacological investigation of inflammatory and vascular disease mechanisms. The programme will deliver scientists adept in the crucial skill set needed for successful careers in UK Life sciences especially deeper phenotyping in vascular and inflammatory research, for example in rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis, pulmonary hypertension, hypertension, arrhythmia, nephrology or cancer.

In particular this course is designed to provide a springboard for those individuals wishing to a PhD in this field of research.

This programme will:

  • Give you state-of-the-art practical training in modern molecular and cellular pharmacological techniques, specialising in inflammation
  • Develop the skills you need to conduct biomedical inflammatory research
  • Enable you to contribute to the research culture and knowledge base in healthcare
  • Provide a solid basis for further study.
