Course content

This MRes Advanced Biological Sciences lets you take your enthusiasm deeper with a research project carried out over a full calendar year supported by 4 modules that further develop your knowledge and skills.

The breadth of research in the Institute of Integrative Biology allows bespoke pathways across all of many research interests. Research in the Institute spans the complete range of biological scales from genes and genetic regulation through proteins, post-translational modification and cellular function to whole organisms, populations and ecosystems. We use state-of-the-art “omics” technologies to generate large data-sets both within and across these scales. We also develop new mathematical and computational models to make sure we can fully exploit these data.

This Master of Research programme is designed for those who want to move on to a career in science, whether in academic research, industry or areas of biomedicine research. The programme consists of a 120 credit research project, during which you will work alongside PhD students and full-time researchers as a member of one of our research groups.
