Course content

Course overview

The focus of this MRes is on a biomedical/medical research project in your chosen discipline. This course provides ideal training for students who wish to move onto a PhD programme, or who simply wish to undertake a significant research project.

Why Study Medical Science (MRes) with us?

You will take two taught modules before moving to the research component. You will be able to choose your main discipline before joining the course, and this might include one from: cancer biology, cardiovascular disease, dementia, diabetes, gastroenterology, immunology, oncology, stem cell biology or psychological medicine. You will also join a research team at the Chester Medical School and the medical staff at one of our partner hospital trusts.

Successful completion of the MRes will allow you to directly register onto PhD study and join our team of researchers at the Chester Medical School.

What will I learn?

The two taught modules cover the research skills essential in any clinical or medical research project. You will also have access to any of the Institute’s portfolio of Master’s modules. During these modules, you will develop a research proposal with your supervisor, to ensure an early start on the research work.

Your research project will be within a research group at the forefront of the field.

How will I be taught?

Taught modules are delivered as three-day intensive courses to facilitate attendance from students in employment, both nationwide and internationally. 

Weekly support sessions and journal club supplement learning are held in our modern facilities in Bache Hall.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is entirely through coursework. This culminates in the Research Dissertation, which is assessed by the production of a substantial review paper and an academic research article suitable for publication in an appropriate research journal.
