Masters by Research (MRes) programmes allow students to undertake a substantial amount of independent research while gaining 20 credits of transferable skills training. The programmes are flexible in nature and allow students to take some additional accredited taught credits, in consultation with their supervisor.

Stem cell research is one of the hottest areas of research in modern biology. At Nottingham, we are pursuing several relevant projects to examine the role of stem cells in a variety of tissues and organs including: cardiac and skeletal muscle, neural, blood and vasculature, and primordial germ cells. We are employing a range of model organisms in these studies and projects are available in each of the areas described.
