This Masters programme in Biomedical Sciences offers research training for students intending to proceed to PhD. It is largely based on individual research projects rather than coursework, and allows you to specialise in a particular area of study.

Why this programme

-The programme provides training in a wide range of modern molecular biology techniques required to pursue a research career.
-You will gain valuable practical research experience by using the skills and techniques acquired during the programme to complete two extensive research projects.
-The programme is distinctive in that students complete two different extensive research projects of their choice, allowing them to acquire a wide range of knowledge and skills directly relevant to the study of human disease.
-If you are aiming to study for a higher degree, this programme is designed for you.
-If you want to enter the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, this programme provides excellent training; and is an ideal introduction for overseas students who may wish to proceed to PhD studies in the UK.
-You can choose to specialise within a particular discipline or area, which can be important for career development, see programme structure below for more information.

Programme structure

The overall aims of the programme are:
-To provide students with the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to pursue a career in laboratory research.
-To provide students with a theoretical and practical understanding of advanced techniques used in modern biomedical sciences research.
-To provide students with the opportunity to practice research skills in the laboratory by completing two extensive research projects.
MRes students have the opportunity to specialise in a particular discipline or area, which can be important for their career development. The specialisations are:
-Biotechnology
-Cancer Studies
-Cardiovascular Studies
-Cell Engineering
-Integrative Mammalian Biology Fee Waiver
-Integrative Mammalian Biology Scholarship
-Medical Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
-Molecular Genetics
-Neuroscience
-Proteomics

To qualify for a specialisation, students must select two research projects in a cognate research area.

Research projects

The central and most important part of the MRes is the two research projects that students undertake. Students choose both projects themselves in the subject areas that interest them and that will allow them to follow the career path they wish follow. The MRes programme has a huge number of projects which students can choose from, across a wide spectrum of biomedical science.

The following are examples of the types of projects offered, to illustrate the range of subject areas.

-Making blood from human embryonic stem cells
-A gene-microarray based approach to the detection of recombinant human erythropoietin doping in endurance athletes
-Neuropathology of trypanosomiasis
-Development of a new technique for stem cell transfection
-Cloning and analysis of an inflammatory factor in cancer and autoimmune disease
-Analysis of viral induced cancer

Each year students have about 100 different projects to choose from and all students find research topics that interest them.

-It covers the areas of cardiovascular medicine, inflammation and immunology, neuroscience, mathematics, bioinformatics and cell biology, and advances in fundamental biomedical science relevant to integrative mammalian biology.
-You will be taught the administrative procedures and ethical and project planning requirements for applying for statutory licenses (personal and project) for animal work as well as ethical aspects of gene and cell therapy.
-The University is one of the few centres in the UK offering BHF 4-Year PhD studentships. Successful applicants accepted into the programme will be fully funded. For more information, see: BHF 4 year PhD programme.

Programme structure

The programme is part of a 4-year PhD with the first year being an MRes. The MRes is made up of three individual 12-week research placements after an intense two-week induction. Each project will be based on different themes with three different supervisors. Years 2-4 make up the PhD portion of the programme.

Induction
You will be required to attend an in-depth introductory programme, which will provide training in research ethics, statistics, project design, literature review and laboratory safety techniques.

Placements
The induction is followed by three individual research placements. These are at the core of this programme, providing three separate projects to allow you to define your areas of interest for your PhD studies. Each placement is a 12-week project and this will be with three different principal supervisors. You will be encouraged to choose placements beyond your undergraduate subject experience to maximise your exposure to new techniques and science. Supervisors are drawn from a wide range of academic disciplines, such as medicine, biomedical and life sciences, mathematics, electronics and electrical engineering, and veterinary medicine.

Career prospects

You will be taught the practical laboratory skills needed to pursue a career in basic translational medicine and applied science through research projects. After successfully completing year 1, you will be awarded an MRes, and progress to a PhD. The programme produces fully trained scientists ready for progression to academic or industrial careers.

RUSVM offers Master of Science (MSc) by research and PhD degree programs in veterinary research. In our accredited program, research projects have components of bench work in addition to field activities. This is underpinned by a One Health approach to research (the interaction of human, animal and environmental health).

RUSVM’s geographical location in the Caribbean, its existing focus on One Health, and its global partnerships, will appeal to those interested in pursuing knowledge and understanding of public health aspects of all species, rigorous scientific methodology, and the control and prevention of diseases affecting humans and animals in tropical regions. We welcome applications from qualified students in our areas of research expertise:
* One Health (including zoonoses and tropical veterinary research)
* Conservation medicine and ecosystem Health
* Integrative mammalian research (including animal reproductive research)
* Research and innovation in veterinary and medical education

The MSc by Research degree program is based on supervised research over a period of one year full-time or a maximum of 24 months part-time. Progress monitoring is conducted throughout the study period and the student will be asked to demonstrate satisfactory progress at set milestones.

The award of a MSc by Research degree is based on the satisfactory completion of research training in addition to any other designated projects and/or assignments and/or course work, and the completion of a thesis, which must not exceed 30,000 words. Candidates will be required to demonstrate that they have acquired an advanced level of knowledge and understanding in the field of study and are capable of undertaking independent research.
