Molecular biology is a key area underpinning modern biology in the post-genomic era. The science of molecular biology analyses the structure and function of organisms – viral, microbial and eukaryotic – at a molecular level. The structure and function of nucleic acids, genes, proteins and cell-signalling molecules are also analysed by molecular biology. Molecular biology techniques can be used to investigate errors in cellular systems that are fundamental to an advanced understanding of disease aetiology. In addition, innovations in molecular biology permit sophisticated modification of organisms, and manipulation of their functions, to permit the production of novel products and the development of novel therapeutic technologies. The burgeoning global bioscience sector creates a continuing demand for the education of scientists at postgraduate level skilled in molecular biology.

The MSc Molecular Biology with Professional Experience, is an extended full-time Masters programme with a substantive professional experience component. Within the professional experience modules, students have the option of undertaking an internship with a host organisation or, alternatively, campus-based professional experience. Internships are subject to a competitive application and selection process and the host organisation may include the University.

Internships may be paid or unpaid, and this will depend on what is being offered and agreed with the host organisation. Students who do not wish to undertake an internship or are not successful in securing an internship will undertake campus-based professional experience, which will deliver similar learning outcomes through supervised projects and activities designed to offer students the opportunity to integrate theory with an understanding of professional practice.

Some of these modules are examined in January at the end of semester one.

Semester two begins with two modules that focus heavily on introducing subject-specific research skills. These two modules run sequentially, in a short but intensive mode that allows you time to focus on a single topic in depth. In the first of the second semester modules you learn how to analyse data arising from post-genomic studies such as microarray analysis, proteomic analysis and RNAseq. All of the semester two modules are examined by in-course assessment - there are no formal examinations in these modules.

Research profile

The central goal of the Division of Pathway Medicine (DPM) is to integrate post-genomic science with medicine in order to provide a better understanding of disease processes. This will provide the basis for the development of new medical innovations for the diagnosis and treatment of human diseases. To do this the DPM promotes multidisciplinary interactions between science and medicine.

The DPM has two main research themes:

Pathway biology of infection and immunity. This involves the study of host-pathogen interaction in immune cells and the modelling of molecular pathways that control immune cell function in health and disease. Techniques and approaches utilised in this theme are also being applied to the study of other disease processes.

Biochip medicine in systemic response to disease. This programme involves the development of advanced biochip techniques and platforms for translating genomic and pathway research into clinical healthcare. This is a highly disciplinary approach involving the integration of biological and physical sciences with medicine, engineering and computational science.

Training and support

The DPM offers leading-edge multidisciplinary PhD training and research in the application of postgenomic technologies and analytical methodologies for the study of disease pathways and processes.

The DPM has regular seminar speakers and hosts a yearly international conference on pathway medicine. Students attend DPM seminars and the generic skills-training programme provided by the life-sciences graduate programme. Students are invited to the annual DPM scientific workshop held at the Firbush Centre in Perthshire.

Facilities

The DPM fosters an integrative and multidisciplinary approach to disease pathway analysis. Students have access to state-of-the-art facilities for high throughput genomic and proteomic studies and biochip applications, including dedicated laboratories for the study of virus-host interactions.

The Division also houses leading bioinformatics and IT infrastructure and expertise for the integrative analysis and modelling of high throughput genomic and proteomic data.
