Our Mitochondrial Biology and Medicine MRes is a research-based course with a taught component that is equivalent to an MSc. It provides a springboard into a career that involves a working knowledge of scientific research.
The course is designed to provide a thorough understanding of human mitochondrial genetics. It is for graduates with a BSc in the life sciences or other science disciplines, and for intercalating and fully qualified MBBS or BDS students. It can be taken either as a stand-alone qualification or as an entry route onto a PhD or MD.
The taught component of the course includes subject-specific content in the area of mitochondrial biology and medicine. You have the flexibility to develop your own bespoke course by selecting additional, complementary modules. You will also participate in training in general research principles, and other professional and key skills.
Your research project comprises the major element of the course. This project will involve 24 weeks of research in an area of mitochondrial biology and medicine under the supervision of an expert academic researcher in the field.
