Course detail

- Description -

The programme covers basic molecular and cellular immunology; the role of immunological mechanisms in autoimmune, systemic inflammatory, hypersensitivity, infective, immunodeficiency and neoplastic disorders in which the immune system is involved, as well as clinical transplantation and clinical immunology laboratory management; and major laboratory techniques of diagnostic medical immunology.

- Course purpose -

To provide an integral part of scientific and medical training in immunology for clinical Specialty trainees, Grade A/B clinical scientist trainees in immunology, histocompatibility and immunogenetics, biomedical scientists, industrial partners and (overseas) research fellows; and greater awareness and knowledge of recent advances in the physiology of the immune system.

- Course format and assessment -

Lectures one day per week; 10 taught modules (15 credits each) examined by written essays, written practical/data interpretation and learning logs. The 11th module (Research Project) has a value of 45 credits and is examined by a written project and oral component.

Career prospects

For career development in clinical, laboratory and academic immunology, for example towards running a diagnostic service, research group or clinical practice as a Clinical Scientist, Senior Lecturers/Professors and NHS consultants.

The Transplantation MRes enables you to experience an internationally competitive research area, predominantly in academia but also potentially in industry. Read more
The Transplantation MRes enables you to experience an internationally competitive research area, predominantly in academia but also potentially in industry.

The course is designed for graduates with a BSc in the life sciences and is also suitable for graduates from other science disciplines and intercalating and fully qualified MBBS or BDS students.

There is a taught component with subject-specific content in the area of Transplantation. Subject-based modules provide a broad exposure to diverse aspects of transplantation, from clinical concepts to cutting edge scientific development. There will be a unique opportunity to gain insights into the speciality of transplantation sciences in the context of transplantation of haematopoietic stem cells, corneal/limbal stem cells and a variety of solid organs.

The modules aim to:
-Provide sound understanding of the scientific basis underlying the therapeutic benefits and adverse effects of clinical transplants
-Highlight the research areas where applications of immunology and cell biology can improve transplant outcome and patient wellbeing
-Provide a view of bench to bedside translational links between scientific research and clinical practice

The course emphasises the clinical practice driven research, which prepares students for a future career in either medical practice or broad biomedical research. Main topics covered include:
-Transplantation immunology related to cellular and molecular basis of allogeneic immune responses, tolerance, immunosuppression
-The genetic and molecular basis of HLA system, non-HLA immunogenetics, histocompatibility, impact of HLA matching in choice of donor and transplant outcome
-Transplantation pathology related to graft-versus-host disease following haematopoietic stem cell transplant, rejection following solid organ transplant, tissue damage and loss of graft function
-Manipulation of haematopoietic stem cells for clinical use
-Development of novel therapeutic strategies to aid improvement of clinical transplant outcome

It has the flexibility for you to develop your own bespoke course by choosing additional, complementary modules from a wide selection. You will also undertake training in general research principles and other professional and key skills.

The research project comprises the major element of the course. This project will involve 24 weeks’ carrying out research in the area of transplantation under the supervision of an expert academic researcher in the field.
