Infectious Diseases MScR


Course Description

Research profile

This programme is organised by Edinburgh Infectious Diseases (EID), which is hosted by the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine and the College of Science and Engineering.

It provides an introduction to research methodology for biologists, medics and veterinarians. The training also provides an entry into PhD studies. Previous students have undertaken projects in the following areas:

antibiotic resistance and hospital-acquired infections
arthropod vector biology and vectorborne diseases
epidemiology and mathematical modelling of animal and human infections
functional genomics and bioinformatics
molecular diagnosis and point-of-care detection of infectious diseases
the immunology of bacterial and parasitic infections (including major tropical diseases such as malaria, lymphatic filariasis and river blindness)
the immunology of ruminant infections (for example Johne's Disease)
the pathogenesis of prion and viral diseases (animal and human, including herpes and HIV)

The learning process includes a one-year research project and during the study period students will be required to attend research seminars and lectures, including those on the related areas of immunology, microbiology and pathology. Training will also be given in generic skills including: statistics; project management and planning; oral and written presentational skills.

Depending on the project selected, students will learn how to apply modern molecular and biochemical techniques to the investigation of pathogenesis of infections, or the use of statistics and mathematical models to study the epidemiology of diseases.
