Stratified Medicine, also known as Personalised Medicine, is at the cutting edge of a new era for medicine. Our ability to understand how genes, lifestyle and environment can influence disease promises to revolutionise healthcare practices. Stratified Medicine relies on using biomarkers (e.g. genes or protein) to stratify (or split) patients into specific groups for diagnosing or treating diseases. The ideals of Stratified Medicine will be realised with the development of technologies and systems to predict disease, select the best treatment, and reduce side effects for individual patients. This approach to streamline healthcare provides more accurate clinical decision making tools to identify ‘the right treatment, for the right person, at the right time.’

Immunology is linked to our ability to remain healthy and free of disease - fighting off infections and disease and understanding our genetic factors and risk factors in inheriting disease. You look at behavioural factors and their links to disease to understand protection methods and you go into the detail of bioinformatics and genomics to understand DNA and analyse within practical research when you test for specific issues such as stress, hunger and so on and responses in the body.

The programme is designed for you to develop your academic knowledge of immunology and its relevance to disease with analysis and research skills designed to enhance your career prospects, or continue to PhD. You can use your training within educational establishments to apply training, work in patents, science outreach and public engagement.

Focusing on the relevance of the immune response in the maintenance of health and development of disease, graduates will be able to attain the intellectual and practical skills needed to address both theoretical and technical aspects of modern biomedical research.

In common with the other molecular biosciences Masters courses, the MSc in Immunology & Immunotherapy builds on recent advances in genomics to understand the generation of immunological diversity at a cellular level, how this imparts variability in immune responses at the individual and population level and the relevance of the immune system in disease areas such as autoimmunity, cancer, allergy and microbial infections.

This programme responds to the rapid growth in the global bioeconomy by providing the core knowledge and skills needed to compete in a rapidly evolving, highly skilled workforce.

The Masters in Management of Bioeconomy, Innovation and Governance (MSc BIG) is an innovative and dynamic postgraduate qualification designed to meet the increasing demand for skilled people in the growing global bioeconomy.

The MSc BIG programme responds to the central challenges of the bioeconomy, including: developing sustainable innovation in a responsible manner; identifying and exploiting value throughout innovation ecosystems; and bringing new technologies to existing and emerging markets.

To meet these modern challenges, MSc BIG provides students with a dynamic set of competencies, and knowledge about life science innovation, as highly desired by prospective employers in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.

Areas covered by the programme include:

  • agricultural biotechnology
  • sustainable food and animal production
  • synthetic biology
  • pharmaceuticals and antimicrobial resistance
  • regenerative medicine and cell therapies
  • stratified medicine
  • industrial biotechnology
  • genetic databases
  • biofuels and energy-related developments

MSc BIG graduates will excel in strategic thinking that brings globally contextualised solutions to practical problems relating to innovation and firm strategy, policy and regulation, collaborative R&D models, and governance and intellectual property.

Programme structure

The MSc BIG programme draws upon real life case studies and the latest research findings from the Innogen Institute. Experiential learning is encouraged, and is accomplished through problem-based group work activities, presentations and interactive seminars, along with conventional lectures.

You will complete five compulsory courses (80 credits) and a selection of optional courses (40 credits), then work on an independently researched dissertation, which can be a conventional academic dissertation or a work-based project.

Career opportunities

Basic scientific knowledge is no longer sufficient for building a successful career in the growing bioeconomy. There is a high demand for trained professionals in this area, and this degree is an opportunity to impress prospective employers in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors with expertise in life science innovation.

You may also choose to continue your studies and pursue an academic career in this rapidly growing field.

The transferable skills you gain in areas such as communication and research will give you an edge in the employment market, whatever your eventual career.

If you want to get involved in our next industry revolution - Industry 4.0 this degree will go a long way to providing you with many skills needed in this high growth industry area which has continued from where the mass communications revolution. You must have covered either computer science or electrical and electronic engineering as your first degree or a suitable combination to study this Master's degree. The digital age is changing the way we live, communicate, interact and our quality of life rapidly. Cloud based networks are now normal, autonomous vehicles are being explored, visual recognition, GIS aligning to our search interests, data mining to inform us automatically at any point in time what is happening around us and new methods to inform us of danger, awareness, alerts and so on.

Artificial Intelligence provides in depth knowledge of data mining, natural language, information visualisation and communication used in Industry 4.0 innovation industries such as autonomous vehicles, sensor data collection and computation, visual computer recognition software and machine to machine technologies. It is also said that artificial intelligence has the potential to change how we research and act to provide immediate solutions to energy, travel, and gridlock before it happens by setting up more alerts and warnings to us. We now already have the capabilities in smart technology to alert us on maps, apps, weather stations, lighting, sensors and other electronic and wired machine to machine devices to provide instant relevant information.
