This exciting Master’s programme aims to provide specialist theoretical and practical knowledge in molecular and cellular genetics for the study of human disease in the context of the scientific and clinical problem of human cancer.
If focuses on the development of research skills in medical genetics and human diseases, and is designed to enable you to develop the ability to become an independent and creative scientist, able to form useful working hypotheses and to analyse data appropriately.
Taught module will focus on how a greater understanding of these processes has created new avenues and targets for the therapeutic intervention for many human diseases. Aims
The course aims to provide you with specialist theoretical and practical knowledge and experience of cellular, molecular biology and genetics, and their application to the study of human diseases in the context to the scientific and clinical problem of human cancer. The course will focus on developing research skills and is designed to enable you to become an independent and creative scientist.
Through our enthusiastic, innovative and research-driven approach, the teaching on this course reflects the fast changing nature of biomedical research, with specific emphasis to human genome, molecular medicine and cancer research.
A recent UK first or second class Honours degree in the field of Biosciences. Other qualifications including equivalent internationally recognised qualification or relevant experience from health professionals (eg doctors; nurses; MLSOs) will be assessed on an individual basis and a request for completion of an online biological test in molecular and cell biology may be required.
