Course Description

AIMS The programme provides a springboard into a career that involves a working knowledge of scientific research in academia and industry. It is designed for intercalating and fully qualified MB BS or BDS students, graduates with a BSc in the life sciences and graduates from other science disciplines. The MRes can be taken either as a stand-alone qualification or act as an entry route onto a PhD or MD. PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION The MRes is a research-based qualification with a taught component that is of an equivalent standard to an MSc. It provides training in contemporary medical and molecular biosciences through subject-knowledge modules in or related to ageing and health (60 credits), professional and key skills training (20 credits), and a 24-week laboratory-based research project (100 credits). The programme enables you to experience an internationally competitive research area, predominantly in academia but also potentially in industry. If you register for an integrated MResPhD, MResMD or MResDDS you will be allocated projects that are relevant to your proposed PhD or MD, or DDS programme. Subject-based modules in Ageing and Health cover: why ageing is seen in most organisms key mechanisms of ageing, particularly effects of stress at molecular and cellular levels, linked to important and clinically relevant examples of age-related disease in a number of animal and human models.
