MSc Molecular Medicine (Clinical Applications)

Course Description

This intense course focuses on the molecular and genetic factors of human diseases. Understanding those factors is crucial to the development of therapies.

After you've completed the non-clinical elements of the MSc in Molecular Medicine, you’ll spend 20 weeks with a clinical team, working on a particular health or disease area.

You could work primarily with either a clinical research team or a clinical practice team – depending on your preferred choice and the availability of attachments.

The course will give you a critical understanding of how molecular medicine is being applied to real problems in a particular clinical area. It is assessed mainly through written coursework and dissertations.
