Key Features of the MRes in Biochemistry and Cell Biology

The MRes in Biochemistry and Cell Biology at University College Cork is a research-intensive course designed to maximize a student's hands-on laboratory experience and research skills. The 12-month research project is supervised by an internationally-recognized investigator based in the School of Biochemistry and Cell Biology. Research projects are available in the areas of bioanalysis, bioinformatics, proteomics, cancer biology, cell signaling, gene expression, trafficking, molecular genetics, neurobiology, RNA biology, translational control and synthetic biology. The MRes has a strong focus on presentation and writing skills that are required for a successful research career, including research planning proposal writing. In addition to this, students develop their general and transferable skills in laboratory techniques and safety, research ethics and integrity, information literary, science communication and statistics. Students are also required to attend weekly research seminars presented by both external and internal speakers.

Core and Elective Modules

Students in the MRes programme begin their research projects with a selected supervisor in week two, following a research induction and orientation. In addition to the research component, the following modules must be completed:
- Scientific Communication of Current Topics in Molecular Cell Biology
- Scientific Research Planning and Proposals
Students must also complete one (10-credit) or two (5-credit) electives from several options:
- Scientific Training for Enhanced Postgraduate Studies
- Biotechniques
- Information Literacy Skills
- Scientific Outreach and Communication
- Introduction to Research Ethics
- Statistics and Data Analysis for Postgraduate Research Students

Why choose the MRes in Biochemistry and Cell Biology?

With an emphasis on the individual, the MRes has a dedicated director and experienced academic staff who will help students fulfill their research career ambitions. The School of Biochemistry and Cell Biology is a strong research unit based at University College Cork, Ireland's first 5 star university (QS) and the world's first 'Green Campus'. Recently named 'University of the Year 2016' by The Sunday Times and located within walking distance of Cork city centre, UCC enjoys a great location and a vibrant campus.
Students who complete the MRes will be competitive to secure a PhD position or enter directly into employment within the biotechnology or pharmaceutical sectors. All of the students in our current class have ambitions of continuing on to a PhD.

Course Details

A distinctive feature of the MSc in Molecular Cell Biology with Bioinnovation is that you will receive formal innovation and technology commercialisation training through modules from the College of Business and Law at UCC.

With three primary research themes – cancer biology, infection/immunity and molecular neuroscience, you will select projects with internationally-renowned research groups from the Schools of Biochemistry, Microbiology and Department of Anatomy/Neuroscience, following the completion of discipline-specific modules.

You will not only possess excellent research and technical skills on graduation but also the necessary business development and commercialisation skills for life science innovation.

Format

The course will consist of lectures, tutorials, hands-on workshops and a research dissertation based on individual research.

Core Scientific Modules (25 credits)

- Cell and Molecular Biology
- Human Molecular Genetics and Genetic Engineering Techniques
- Biological and Clinical Perspectives of Human Disease

Scientific Skills-Development Modules (10 credits)

- Biotechniques
- Scientific Communication of Current Topics in Molecular Cell Biology Core Business Modules (10 credits)
- Marketing for High Technology Entrepreneurs
- Technology and Business Planning

Elective modules (5 credits)

- Creativity and Opportunity Recognition
- Innovation Finance
- Intellectual Property Law for High-Tech Entrepreneurs

Research Project (40 credits)

You will select a project offered by internationally-renowned research groups from the Schools of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Microbiology and Anatomy/Neuroscience. With three primary research themes – cancer biology, infection/immunity and molecular neuroscience, you will complete a six month project based on individual research in one of these themes and compile the results into an MSc dissertation on completion.

You will gain invaluable hands-on, practical experience in experimental design, implementation and data interpretation and develop a wide array of transferable skills, including written and verbal communication; data recording, analysis and presentation; critical evaluation of published material; learning to work collaboratively and independently as well as project and time-management.

Further details on the content and modules are available on the Postgraduate College Calendar - http://www.ucc.ie/calendar/postgraduate/Masters/science/page04.html#molecular

Assessment

Taught modules are examined by formal written examination and continuous assessment. The research dissertation for the six-month research project must be submitted by the end of the first academic year of registration for examination by internal and external examiners.

Careers

You will be ideally positioned to enter into a PhD after graduation, but could also pursue a number of career paths including: technology transfer officer within higher education institutions and national agencies, R&D project manager, commercialisation manager within a life science start-up, or development manager within the pharmaceutical sector. The course will also equip you with the skills required to develop your own start-up venture.

A first destination surveys from 2012 - 2014 have revealed that 100% of our graduates are in employment or further education within one-year of completing the MSc in Molecular Cell Biology with Bioinnovation.

The MSc in Cancer Research is aimed at life science and medical graduates who wish to specialise in the field of cancer research. The purpose of the programme is to provide students with extensive research-laboratory training and an overarching theoretical knowledge of cancer biology. The course has a unique, research-oriented approach with taught modules, resulting in an internationally recognised MSc degree. The obtained knowledge and skillset enables our graduates to pursue a career as a research-scientist in academia, in the medical field or in the biotechnology or pharmaceutical sector.

Specifically the course aims to:

1. Provide a broad and in-depth knowledge in molecular-, cellular- and clinical cancer biology.

2. Provide knowledge in a broad range of classic as well as state-of-the-art research technologies applied in cancer research.

3. Provide training in laboratory and research skills both at basic and advanced levels by assigning students a laboratory research project through which they will develop both technical competencies and critical thinking abilities.

4. Facilitate the interdisciplinary approach of cancer research by engaging clinical and nonclinical scientists, enabling the cross-fertilisation of ideas and thus promoting medically-focused research.

The MSc in Cancer research is a modular course, consisting of 30% taught material (equalling 25 ECTS units) combined with a strong, 70% research element (equal to 65 ECTS) allowing ample time for the students to gain in-depth research exposure.

The course material is delivered using a blended learning format (combination of face-to-face/traditional-format lectures, tutorials, self-directed learning and assignments) that will not only deliver the information the students have to attain, but also trains the students how to research independently and evaluate the information critically, which are key and valuable skills for a highly qualified cancer research scientist.

The research element will encompass two semesters. After an induction phase, the students will work on one research project throughout the two semesters allowing them to acquire a broad range of research skills ranging from state-of-the-art technologies through data interpretation to experimental design and data presentation. Available research project titles in participating laboratories of the School of Natural Sciences and other programme-associated Institutes will be provided to the students from which they can choose their project options. The students will write the MSc thesis on the findings of their research project..

Overall, the knowledge and laboratory experience providesour graduates with a great advantage when competing for either academic or industry-linked careers.
