Overview

This programme represents an innovative development in higher degree options in the biological sciences. It is targeted at biological and health science graduates who are interested in the major challenges in health and development today and who wish to broaden their understanding of immunology, its importance in global health and the factors that impact on immunological intervention strategies in health and disease. An important component of the course covers emerging and reemerging diseases including diseases of poverty.

Course Structure

The programme will be delivered as 12 taught modules and a lab-based research project. The taught modules include fundamental, clinical and applied immunology, global health and diseases of poverty, epidemiology, medical geography, systems biology, clinical trials, patenting, licensing and bioethics. Each module includes tutorial and/or practical sessions that complement and expand on the lecture content. A series of weekly workshops and seminars will cover important aspects of postgraduate study, including study skills, grant and report writing, scientific writing etc.

Career Options

The MSc in Immunology and Global Health will equip students to avail of career opportunities in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors. It is a gateway to further study for a PhD degree or a career in research. Students completing this course will be advantaged in securing prized postgraduate research positions with leading research groups. In addition, candidates from bioscience backgrounds completing this MSc course will be well placed for securing positions in governmental or nongovernmental organisations responsible for implementing health policy.

The aim of this course, run jointly with Dublin Institute of Technology, Kevin Street, is to provide postgraduate education in medical laboratory science for those wishing to pursue a career in this field. It provides an advanced programme in the molecular basis of disease including the etiology, pathogenesis and investigation of the disease process. I.T. and management as applied to Medical Laboratories are also covered. Students are also offered a range of specialist subject modules including: Cellular Pathology, Clinical Chemistry, Haematology, Immunology, Microbiology and Transfusion Science. Students develop research skills by partaking in an advanced practical project in their chosen area of specialisation.

Students are required to register with both DIT and TCD, and are full students of both institutions and enjoy the benefits of full post-graduate membership of both institutions.

The course is available on a part-time block-release basis and may be offered in future academic years on a full-time basis.The duration of the course is two academic years. Students attend college for ten weeks of formal learning with student directed learning, course work, assignments, tutor interaction and project work taking place during the remaining time.

There is a separate entry on admission to the P.Grad.Dip. in Molecular Medicine.

This course aims to give participants an indepth understanding of the emerging field of molecular medicine which draws together developments in molecular and cellular biology to describe disease processes at a functional level - that of molecular interactions.

The course aims to provide students with an understanding of the molecular basis of human disease and its implications for the practice of clinical medicine and research in the life sciences. The course will ensure that students from all disciplines have the skills necessary to conduct research and critically evaluate the scientific and medical literature.

The course includes lectures on cellular biology and molecular genetics as they apply generally to normal cell and tissue function and to disease processes. Modules on molecular signalling and therapeutics, bioinformatics and ethical-legal aspects of the discipline are included, as well as literature reviews, laboratory practicals and a laboratory project.

The course is available in a one-year, full-time and a two-year, part-time format. It consists of lectures on cellular biology and molecular genetics as they apply generally to normal cell and tissue function and more specifically to disease processes such as cancer, immune dysfunction, and diseases with an inherited component. The course content includes molecular signalling and therapeutics, molecular and population genetics, nanoscience, and high content cell analysis. There is a core, 'Research Skills' module which encompasses bioinformatics and ethical-legal aspects of the emerging discipline, literature reviews, and laboratory practicals in basic molecular and cellular techniques. Candidates will complete a laboratory project of three months (full-time) or six months (part-time) duration. Candidates must also complete the taught module, Molecular Mechanisms of Human Disease I. This course provides the applicant with state-of-the-art information and critical analysis of: The human genome at a molecular level, the integration of molecular and cellular biology in relation to human diseases; the molecular basis of human genetic disease; the molecular interactions between microbiological pathogens and the human host; the technology currently employed in researching molecular medicine; the molecular basis of common human inflammatory diseases and malignancies; the utilisation of knowledge on the molecular basis of human disease in planning and design of novel therapies, using pharmacological agents or gene therapy; the ethical and legal aspects of molecular medicine as it impinges on clinical practice. You will also gain a working appreciation of molecular and cellular biology at the practical level and development of the ability to perform independent research with the ability to apply bioinformatic and computational techniques in medical and biological research, and information retrieval. The student is examined on the basis of a submitted critical literature review essay, a written examination, assessment of laboratory practicals and the writing of a dissertation based on a research project. Candidates from health science (medical, dental, veterinary), biological science and other science disciplines (e.g. chemical or pharmacy), are invited to apply.

The MSc in Healthcare Infection Management is a postgraduate qualification that is offered by the School of Medicine, Trinity College Dublin, to meet the need for a multi-disciplinary approach to modern healthcare infection control. The course provides specialist teaching in conjunction with St. James's Hospital, Tallaght Hospital, the Health Service Executive, and invited international experts. The MSc in Healthcare Infection Management is primarily offered to medical microbiologists, infectious disease physicians, antimicrobial pharmacists, biomedical scientists, infection control specialists and public health workers and can be taken as either a 1-year full-time degree, or as a 2-year part-time degree. The MSc in Healthcare Infection Management aims to provide graduates with a comprehensive understanding of the multiple disciplines that must align to deliver effective control of human pathogens in the hospital and community settings. The course will provide foundation and advanced knowledge on the monitoring, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of infectious diseases and is delivered as lectures, demonstrations, seminars, practicals and workshops. In terms of structure, the course is delivered in the form of 4 taught modules, which comprise a total of 60 ECTS, on the following themes: Module 1: Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (15 ECTS); Module 2: Antimicrobial Therapy and Resistance (15 ECTS); Module 3: Epidemiology and Infection Control (15 ECTS); Module 4: Multidisciplinary Management of Infection (15 ECTS). There is also a Research Dissertation module (30 ECTS) that will enable students to acquire new laboratory skills and perform research on a topic that is relevant to contemporary healthcare.
