Taught Postgraduate Courses
- MSc Bioinformatics - This course, aimed at Biological Sciences graduates, responds to the national and international need for trained bioinformaticians by teaching the theoretical and practical analytical skills used in bioinformatics.
- MSc Cancer Cell and Molecular Biology - Designed to provide an in-depth study of current developments in the molecular biology of cancer cells and give you direct experience of relevant techniques currently used in cancer research.
- MRes Cell Physiology and Pharmacology - This programme is useful if you are considering a career in research, either in academia or the commercial world. The major component of the course is the laboratory research project, with a small taught element.
- MSc Molecular Genetics - Provides instruction in current concepts and techniques of molecular genetics as applied in modern research, offers practical experience of experimental techniques and provide a framework to develop skills to plan research and devise strategies to achieve specific goals.
- Biochemistry - Offers excellent facilities for postgraduate research. Biochemistry is a dynamic and highly successful research department with international ambitions and scope and are at the forefront of international research in their areas of strength.
- Biology - The Department of Biology provides a stimulating and exciting environment in which to undertake a postgraduate research degree, and is committed to providing postgraduate training of the highest possible quality. Research projects may be offered in a range of research areas.
- Cell Physiology and Pharmacology - Research is focused into four main research themes; cardiovascular medicine, neuroscience, cell signalling and respiratory medicine. Each postgraduate student is accepted to work on a particular research project under the supervision of a member of staff and concentrates on techniques appropriate to the project.
- Genetics - The Department of Genetics provides a stimulating and supportive environment for postgraduate education. Our Postgraduate Training Programme aims to develop postgraduate students into mature and independent research scientists possessing highly marketable scientific skills.
