This course will enable you to enhance your knowledge and understanding of modern cellular pathology through a range of option modules. In addition, the core modules in cellular pathology are designed to deliver a comprehensive overview of contemporary technical practice in the context of service delivery to the pathologist for diagnostic practice, or for the scientist engaged in cell and tissue-based research.
Our specialist cellular pathology modules are supported by the online use of interactive digital microscopy, for example in pathology case studies, to illustrate the applications of a range of visualisation methods in cellular pathology. Practical experience in research design and methodology is gained through the laboratory-based research project.
The following modules are indicative of what you will study on this course.
Core modules -ADVANCES IN CELLULAR PATHOLOGY -DIAGNOSTIC CELLULAR PATHOLOGY -MOLECULAR SCIENCE AND DIAGNOSTICS -POSTGRADUATE RESEARCH METHODS -POSTGRADUATE PROJECT
Option modules -AUTOMATION IN BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES -CELL SIGNALLING AND GENETICS -EXTENDED POSTGRADUATE PROJECT -IMMUNOPATHOLOGY -IMMUNOTHERAPY -MOLECULAR AND CELLULAR THERAPEUTICS -PRINCIPLES OF MOLECULAR MEDICINE -SYSTEMS BIOLOGY
As a graduate of this course you will possess a range of transferable skills that will enhance your employment prospects and your research opportunities in the UK or overseas. For those biomedical scientists (or international equivalents) undertaking continuing professional development, this course will enhance your knowledge base in your chosen specialist discipline and open up the potential for career advancement or moves towards involvement in research and development.
Successful completion of the course will enhance the career prospects of graduates for entering PhD programmes; you may also find employment in hospital laboratories, academia, research institutes, or in the pharmaceutical and related industries.
The course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS).
