You’ll study the molecular and cellular biology of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and yeasts. These include gene expression and regulation, gene transfer, genome structure, epidemiology, cell communication pathogenicity and virulence factors. You’ll have the opportunity to study flexibly, tailoring your course according to your needs.
The MRes provides a unique mix of taught components, extended laboratory projects, literature reviews and preparation of a grant proposal based on a research dissertation. You’ll gain an insight into a range of research activities and techniques, gaining the transferable skills training needed for all early stage researchers. You’ll also address the scientific, ethical and commercial context within which the research takes place.
All of the MRes courses can be studied as the first year of our Integrated PhD course.
- 90% of our research judged to be internationally recognised, excellent or world-leading
- Our current research funding portfolio stands at £14 million, supporting internationally excellent research in the biosciences
MRes degree programmes are designed for graduates who are contemplating a research career and who may go on to study for a PhD or to a position in industry involving interaction with research scientists.
If these do not apply, you might consider an MSc programme (http://www.bath.ac.uk/bio-sci/masters/)
