The MSc Mathematical Medicine and Biology will provide you with skills suitable for a research career in the exciting and growing field of mathematical medicine and biology.
You will take core modules in biology and the application of mathematics to medicine and biology. More advanced modules will introduce research topics in biomedical mathematics, including options in Computational Biology and Theoretical Neuroscience.
The taught training programme will be followed by a substantial individual project leading to a dissertation.
Throughout the course, the exceptional strength of the Centre for Mathematical Medicine and Biology will facilitate your hands-on experience of interdisciplinary biomedical research.
Some teaching activities will take place at the Sutton Bonington campus. The University provides a regular hopper bus between University Park and Sutton Bonington.
