Antimicrobial resistance is an urgent threat to healthcare around the world. St George’s is one of the first universities to offer a unique specialist pathway to support important research in this area.

Biomedical scientists work at the cutting edge of research and medicine, helping to solve some of the most threatening diseases and conditions facing humanity. St George’s boasts a renowned heritage in this field, constantly developing new and innovative ways to diagnose, prevent and treat numerous diseases. Edward Jenner, the ‘father of immunology’ who successfully performed the first vaccination against smallpox, was based at St George’s. More recently, our research has included a focus on tuberculosis, malaria and HIV in low and middle-income countries.

This pathway will give you the opportunity to study antimicrobial resistance, with a focus on healthcare impact, genetic technologies and interventions to reduce antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Specific topics will include AMR in tuberculosis, MRSA, sexually transmitted infections and HIV. There will be an opportunity to learn bioinformatics techniques and the enormous impact that genetics is having on understanding epidemiology, selection and evolution of AMR pathogens. There will be a series of sessions focusing on strategies to reduce AMR, such as rapid diagnostics, stewardship, dosing, new drugs, vaccines and phage.

This course will provide you with the skills, knowledge and experience for a rewarding career in biomedical science or to progress on to a fulfilling research degree such as a PhD. 

Highlights

  • Excellent Image Resource and Biomedical Research facilities to help you develop strong research knowledge and skills
  • Shared campus with St George’s Hospital, one of the largest teaching hospitals in the UK
  • Expertise in clinical, epidemiological and laboratory research within the university and the hospital

Studying

Teaching is delivered through a variety of methods such as lectures, course-specific seminars and small group sessions. You will also participate in self-directed study and wider reading, as well as individual and group practical sessions. 

St George’s is the only university in the country to give you the opportunity to undertake a nine month research project in this topic. This will give you time to immerse yourself in detailed research, generating high quality data that could be impactful enough for publication. It’s incredibly valuable work and has led to many exciting discoveries and important breakthroughs.

You will have the freedom to choose from a wide-ranging list of projects, and to work in a vibrant research environment with world-renowned researchers. You will also work with their research teams, PhD students and post-doctoral scientists to gain insight and experience over the course of your project.

At St George’s, you will benefit from working as part of a small, close-knit team. Students, clinicians and researchers work happily and effectively together. St George’s is more a small community than a large anonymous institution, with all the advantages that brings for personal input and development.

Careers

If you want to pursue a career in biomedical research – whether in academia, industry or government – this course will open up a world of opportunities. Many St George’s graduates have gone on to work in a variety of exciting and fulfilling careers in the biotech industry.

This course is highly effective in accelerating the development of your general healthcare career. The depth and quality of the academic research that you will undertake on your nine month project will also put you in a good position to apply for a PhD.
