Medical Molecular Biology is the application of modern molecular biology and genetics in medical research, medical sciences and the clinic has led to huge advances in the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of human disease. Students choosing to study the Medical Molecular Biology with Genetics program will enjoy a modular, but highly integrated course that delivers the theoretical knowledge and extensive practical laboratory experience required for progress on to PhD studies in medical molecular research and/or employment in molecular diagnostics or medical sciences industries.
Successful graduates will also have attained transferable skills required to independently adapt and optimize scientific methodologies, critically interpret and evaluate self-generated and published scientific literature and data and undertake a predominantly self-reliant approach to laboratory based work, study and research.
Research Skills Medical Biotechnology Human Molecular Genetics Human Immunology & Disease Laboratory Molecular Research Stem Cells, Disease & Therapy Applied Anatomy & Histopathology Research projects are run in the Robert Edwards laboratory and the laboratories of the North West Cancer Research Institute.
Semester 3 consists of a 60-credit laboratory based research project and dissertation.
