The twelve month, full-time programme is structured to allow for 3 hours lectures per week whilst the rest of the time is spent in the lab or carrying out other research project related work.
Please note that this programme is suitable for intercalating medical students.
MRes in Biomedical Sciences & Translational Medicine students undertake 3 research projects that comprise 10 weeks of lab work followed by 2 weeks in which to write a report. Students also present either a poster or talk at the end of every research project. During the project, all students are encouraged to suggest experiments, design experimental protocols, as well as being taught subject specific techniques and advanced knowledge in transferable skills. The research projects will include at least three different research techniques to enhance experimental training skills that need to be clearly stated at the end of each project.
The lectures relate to state-of-the-art research techniques, application of knowledge in scientific and clinical areas, and the development of personal and professional transferable skills. Important and innovative parts of the transferable skills students take part in include the following workshops “IP and Commercialization (our own version of Dragon’s Den)”, Demonstrator Training and “Writing a PhD Studentship”, as well as taking part in debates for public understanding of science.
