The MSc in Bioengineering provides education and training to the next generation of biomedical engineers. Bioengineering is defined as the application of the principles of engineering to advancements in healthcare and medicine. Some of the most exciting work in biomedical engineering today takes place at the intersection of disciplines where the biological, physical and digital worlds intersect and have an impact on the human condition.

Students of the MSc in Bioengineering in Trinity College Dublin take lectures from experts in a variety of biomedical engineering subjects and carry out research in world class, state of the art research laboratories and facilities.

Students of the MSc in Bioengineering have the opportunity to specialise in one of three key research themes - neural engineering, tissue engineering and medical device design.

The MSc in Bioengineering with specialisation in Neural Engineering aims to provide students with the education needed to undertake neural engineering in research and clinical environments. Students receive a focused education on the key subjects of neural engineering such as Neural Signal Analysis, Implantable Neural Systems and Neuroimaging Technologies. Neural engineering has generated considerable scientific and clinical opportunities, not only for the development of interfaces between the brain and computers but also for its mostly untapped potential to help understand neurological disorders such as Parkinson's Disease or psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia.

The MSc in Bioengineering with specialisation in Medical Device Design is designed to bring together clinicians, researchers and the medical device industry to produce new solutions for clinical needs. The field of medical device research is a fast moving area which can offer students a rewarding career in the global medical device market. Students will gain a specific education of the key topics in medical device design process and a knowledge of medical device regulation.

The MSc in Bioengineering with specialisation in Tissue Engineering provides students with an understanding of stem cells, animal/human cell culture processes, and strategies to regenerate or repair damaged tissues. This exiting multidisciplinary field of research holds significant potential in the treatment of many diseases and disorders.

Neuroscience is a discipline concerned with the scientific study of the nervous system in health and disease. Research in the neurosciences is of considerable clinical impact considering the debilitating and costly effects of neurological and psychiatric disease. In this regard, a major goal of modern neuroscience research is to elucidate the underlying causes (genetic or environmental) of major brain diseases, and to produce more effective treatments for major psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and depression, and neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, motor neurone disease and epilepsy. Improved treatment strategies for brain disorders relies entirely on increased understanding gained from research which integrates molecular, cellular and clinical aspects of disease. In this regard it is clear that interdisciplinary approaches are necessary to understand the complex processes which underlie brain function in health and disease. This interdisciplinary philosophy is adopted in the delivery of our M.Sc. programme in Neuroscience, which is underpinned by the diverse research expertise available within Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience (TCIN).

Course Content:

This one-year M.Sc. course aims to provide a multidisciplinary training in the neurosciences, in topics ranging from molecular to behavioural. The course is ideal for students wishing to extend their specialised knowledge, and for those wishing to convert from their original degree discipline. The programme will equip participants with the skills necessary to progress into a career in biomedical, pharmaceutical or neuropsychological research. Instruction for the course consists of approximately 200 contact hours over two academic Terms to include lectures, laboratory practical sessions, journal club workshops and student-based seminars. Modules are assessed by a mixture of in course assessment and written examinations.

Specialist modules covered include:

Form and Function of the Nervous System, Biochemical Basis of Neuropharmacology, Neuropharmacology, Drug Development, Advanced Neuroimmunology, Experimental Neuroscience, Scientific Literature Skills, Neural Engineering, Neuroimaging Technology, Current Topics in Neuroscience, Cellular Neuroscience, and Research Skills.

The third Term consists of a research project on novel aspects of Neuroscience. Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience is a dynamic research environment with research spanning molecular/cellular neuroscience to clinical/translational neuroscience. Projects across these research areas may be undertaken in consultation with an expert supervisor. For students interested in a project in cellular/molecular neuroscience a range of cellular techniques such as tissue culture, immunocytochemistry, western immunobloting and immunoprecipitation, confocal microscopy, Immunoassays, flow cytometry, Real-time PCR, and high performance liquid chromatography are available. In addition, some projects will involve assessing behavioural, electrophysiological and neurochemical endpoints using in vivo models of neurological and psychiatric disease. For those with an interest in experimentation on human subjects, projects will be offered utilizing techniques such as functional magnetic resonance imaging and neurocognitive testing. A selection of national and international projects is also available, which involve collaboration with other academic institutes and pharmaceutical companies, in Ireland, UK and across Europe.
