MSc Chronic Disease and Immunity

Course Description

The World Health Organisation Global Burden of Disease Study has shown that non-communicable chronic disease accounts for ~ 60% of deaths globally. Major contributors include cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and chronic kidney disease. Inflammation is the central driving force in much of this burden of chronic degenerative disease. This MSc course is therefore designed to integrate current cutting-edge research in the fields of molecular and cellular biology and immunology and use this to demonstrate:

- The fundamental processes of inflammation
- The molecular and cellular mechanisms of disease progression that are driven by inflammation

The course is carefully integrated and combines up-to-date practical and theoretical teaching methods to prepare students for careers in postgraduate biomedical research, medicine, and the bio-pharmaceutical industry.
