Cardiovascular Health & Disease MRes

Course Description

This programme has both taught and research components and is suitable for those with little or no previous research experience.

This MRes course focuses on cardiovascular research within a unique multidisciplinary training environment.

You will develop broad biomedical research skills, but with an emphasis on application to cardiovascular science.

Cardiovascular diseases are responsible for considerable mortality, disability and a reduced quality of life in the developed world. Despite the large number of treatment strategies, the widespread occurrence of these disorders dictates the search for improved treatments.

The development of new therapies and treatment strategies relies on a continued evolution of our understanding of the underlying mechanisms responsible for the development of cardiovascular disorders.

It is now widely recognised by employers and research councils that unravelling the basis of cardiovascular disease and development of new therapies is a high priority area for investment, especially since the economic burden of CVD is increasing.

However, it is becoming increasingly clearer that a gap has opened up between the skills possessed by new graduates and the skills normally expected on entry to a research degree or an industrial research career.

The MRes in Cardiovascular Health and Disease has been specifically designed to fill this gap for those who wish to pursue a research career in cardiovascular sciences.
