Course content

This course is designed to provide the skills suitable for a research career in the exciting and growing field of mathematical medicine and biology.

You will be trained in advanced mathematical techniques including partial differential equations and stochastic processes. In addition, a broad variety of biological and medical applications, ranging from subcellular processes such as gene regulation to organ-level dynamics will be covered.

The taught training programme will be followed by a substantial individual project leading to a dissertation.

Throughout the course, the exceptional strength of the Centre for Mathematical Medicine and Biology will facilitate your hands-on experience of interdisciplinary biomedical research.
