Biomedical Sciences [MRes]


Course Description

Overview

This Masters programme in Biomedical Sciences offers research training for students intending to proceed to PhD. It is largely based on individual research projects rather than coursework, and allows you to specialise in a particular area of study.

Key facts

• MRes: 12 months full-time

Why Glasgow

• The programme provides training in a wide range of modern molecular biology techniques required to pursue a research career.
• You will gain valuable practical research experience by using the skills and techniques acquired during the programme to complete two extensive research projects.
• The programme is distinctive in that students complete two different extensive research projects of their choice, allowing them to acquire a wide range of knowledge and skills directly relevant to the study of human disease.
• If you are aiming to study for a higher degree, this programme is designed for you.
• If you want to enter the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, this programme provides excellent training; and is an ideal introduction for overseas students who may wish to proceed to PhD studies in the UK.
• You can choose to specialise within a particular discipline or area, which can be important for career development, see programme structure below for more information.

Programme Structure

The overall aims of the programme are:

• to provide students with the knowledge, skills and confidence needed to pursue a career in laboratory research.
• to provide students with a theoretical and practical understanding of advanced techniques used in modern biomedical sciences research.
• to provide students with the opportunity to practice research skills in the laboratory by completing two extensive research projects.

MRes students have the opportunity to specialise in a particular discipline or area, which can be important for their career development. The specialisations are:
• Biotechnology
• Cancer Studies
• Cardiovascular Studies
• Cell Engineering
• Integrative Mammalian Biology Fee Waiver
• Integrative Mammalian Biology Scholarship
• Medical Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
• Molecular Genetics
• Neuroscience
• Proteomics

Research Projects

The central and most important part of the MRes is the two research projects that students undertake. Students choose both projects themselves in the subject areas that interest them and that will allow them to follow the career path they wish follow. The MRes programme has a huge number of projects which students can choose from, across a wide spectrum of biomedical science.

The following are examples of the types of projects offered, to illustrate the range of subject areas.

• Making blood from human embryonic stem cells

• A gene-microarray based approach to the detection of recombinant human erythropoietin doping in endurance athletes

• Neuropathology of trypanosomiasis

• Development of a new technique for stem cell transfection

• Cloning and analysis of an inflammatory factor in cancer and autoimmune disease

• Analysis of viral induced cancer

Each year students have about 100 different projects to choose from and all students find research topics that interest them.

(Student Profile)

Asif Qureshi

It was September 2008 when I first arrived here in Glasgow and the time clock has run so fast since then. Being an international student, it was a difficult task from the very beginning to get adjusted to a completely new environment. The friendly and co-operative environment at Glasgow, both at the University and socially, surprised me and this made it so easy to get on board with the routine life. I have had a fantastic time in the College so far with an excellent academic and administrative supervision. During my studies, I got various chances to present my research at both national and international conferences. My supervisor has supported me all the way through my studies and the Graduate School has provided their best support in making my studies as smooth as possible. Training courses run by the Graduate school not only provided me an opportunity to build my personal skills but also will help me in establishing my career. I am sure that after I finish my PhD, I am going to miss the student life at Glasgow a lot.

MRes Biomedical Sciences (Integrative Mammalian Biology/Systems Biology) - 4 Awards

The MRC supports systems biology approaches to science (For more details see:
http://www.gla.ac.uk/research/keyresearchareas/interdisciplinaryresearch/systemsbiology/)
as well as promoting training in animal sciences. The University of Glasgow is one of four centres of excellence in the training of integrative mammalian biology which received funding from the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), British Pharmacological Society, KTN, Medical Research Council and Scottish Higher Education Funding Council and offers a wide range of expertise in Systems Biology. As part of the MRC support for these activities, up to 4 scholarships are available for our one year MRes in Integrative Mammalian Biology/Systems Biology. The scholarships pay an enhanced stipend for living expenses and cover all tuition fees. The course is based on our highly successful MRes model of two taught modules (taking up about a third of the course) and two projects. One project will involve a systems approach (e.g. mathematical modeling, computing, ‘omics’, bio-engineering) which will be integrated with the physiology/veterinary project. The course will be a specialisation within the existing MRes in Biomedical Sciences. http://www.gla.ac.uk/postgraduate/taught/biomedicalsciences/All candidates intending to specialise in Integrative Mammalian Biology must already have, or be in a position to obtain before the start of the course, a Home Office licence.

Value of Scholarship(s)

£13726 (MRC funded stipend) plus tuition fees

Eligibility

Four fully funded scholarships are available in 2013 to allow suitably qualified candidates to integrate systems biology approaches with whole animal physiology, pharmacology or veterinary science. Candidates for these Medical Research Council (MRC) scholarships must have at least an upper second class Honours degree or equivalent in a relevant subject (for instance physiology, pharmacology, neuroscience or veterinary medicine but we also welcome students with backgrounds in systems approaches such as mathematical modeling, computing, ‘omics’, bio-engineering) and be eligible by residence for a UK research council studentship (i.e. permanently resident in the UK for the last three years).

Application Procedure

We ask that you apply online for the Master of Research in Biomedical Sciences (Integrative Mammalian Biology/Systems Biology) postgraduate taught degree.
