Course Content

Course content

Our Molecular Microbiology 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 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 molecular microbiology. 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.

A subject-based module in molecular microbiology focuses on how model organisms, representative of the diversity of the bacterial sub-kingdom, are helping to add clarity to central biological questions in bacteriology, such as the control and regulation of cell division and of gene expression.

Your research project comprises the major element of the course. This project will involve 24 weeks of research in an area of molecular microbiology under the supervision of an expert academic researcher in the field.

The course allows you to experience an internationally competitive research area, predominantly in academia but also potentially in industry.

Molecular Microbiology MRes is closely linked to a suite of MRes courses that you may also be interested in. See Programme information in our online Prospectus for full details.
