Overview

This programme represents an innovative development in higher degree options in the biological sciences. It is targeted at biological and health science graduates who are interested in the major challenges in health and development today and who wish to broaden their understanding of immunology, its importance in global health and the factors that impact on immunological intervention strategies in health and disease. An important component of the course covers emerging and reemerging diseases including diseases of poverty.

Course Structure

The programme will be delivered as 12 taught modules and a lab-based research project. The taught modules include fundamental, clinical and applied immunology, global health and diseases of poverty, epidemiology, medical geography, systems biology, clinical trials, patenting, licensing and bioethics. Each module includes tutorial and/or practical sessions that complement and expand on the lecture content. A series of weekly workshops and seminars will cover important aspects of postgraduate study, including study skills, grant and report writing, scientific writing etc.

Career Options

The MSc in Immunology and Global Health will equip students to avail of career opportunities in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors. It is a gateway to further study for a PhD degree or a career in research. Students completing this course will be advantaged in securing prized postgraduate research positions with leading research groups. In addition, candidates from bioscience backgrounds completing this MSc course will be well placed for securing positions in governmental or nongovernmental organisations responsible for implementing health policy.

Overview

Students entering the Structured Postgraduate Programme in Biology will be under the supervision of an experienced researcher. All academic staff members in the Biology Department are experienced and active researchers and can supervise research students. Information about their research can be found on the Biology Department Website (https://www.maynoothuniversity.ie/biology/our-research) and interested students should initially contact researchers directly to discuss potential MSc projects.

In most but not all instances, your stipend, university fees, consumable, equipment and travel costs will be paid from a research grant from a national or international grant agency or charity. Your supervisor usually competitively obtains this grant, but students can also obtain their own scholarships.

Upon entering the programme each student will be assigned two additional mentors, an Advisor and an Assessor. The Advisor provides additional mentorship for the student throughout the programme and is someone the student can discuss issues with in addition to their supervisor. The Assessor is a member of staff who will provide an annual constructive critique of the students work programme and will aid, together with the Advisor, in outlining possible future research plans.
In addition to the research project, training is provided through compulsory attendance of a variety of generic and transferable skills as well as subject specific modules. For example, the established Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning will provide research students with experience in practical class demonstrating and teaching and learning methodologies. Training in subject specific skills is provided through modules offered either through the Biology Department or as part of the Dublin Region Higher Education Alliance (DRHEA). Advanced modules in many life science topics are already established within the Biomedical Sciences and Chemistry strands of the DRHEA provides a variety of to students on the programme. Finally, research students will be encouraged to attend at least one international conference during their programme, at which they will be expected to present an oral or poster presentation.

Course Structure

Students must take a minimum of 10 credits in taught modules (at least 5 in generic/ transferable modules and at least 5 in subject specific/advanced specialist modules).

Career Options

Career Options include PhD research in academic research labs in Ireland or worldwide, positions in the Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Industries, Teaching, Scientific writing, etc. Modules available for postgraduate students at Maynooth University provide transferrable skills for careers in both academic and industry settings.
