Molecular Medicine is a broad discipline that relates to the study of the molecular mechanisms of disease and their application in developing therapies for the clinic. It is an exciting time to be a biomedical scientist, with the forefront of healthcare research currently focused on personalised medicine, stem cells and the prospect of gene editing. This taught Masters aims to provide students with an in-depth grounding in contemporary molecular medicine. The Department of Biology has considerable research expertise spanning several areas relevant to molecular medicine, including cancer, immunology, microbiology, neuroscience and parasitology.
