The MRes in Mechanisms of Vascular Disease provides a practical training in modern molecular and proteomic research techniques and their application to traditional methods of pharmacological investigation of vascular disease mechanisms. This training will be an invaluable foundation if you wish to pursue a career in industry or academic research.
The course is suitable for well-qualified life science graduates interested in pursuing vascular research, for example in inflammation, atherosclerosis, hypertension, diabetes, nephrology, or cancer. You follow an initial
three-month course of tutorials and practicals to obtain a broad education in vascular function, and to develop the necessary laboratory skills for conducting the project element of the programme. You will spend periods in three separate laboratories learning and applying a variety of techniques as part of an integrated research project.
The core course (twelve weeks) provides training in generic research skills and transferable skills. It also provides a practical training in functional genomics so you develop the laboratory skills required for your research projects (eg gene expression, protein characterisation). You will perform three interlinked projects on a specific research theme. The research project programme will ensure you obtain a wide range of practical skills (ie in vivo, in vitro, and cell studies with biochemical and molecular methods).
You will be assessed on reports and presentations made during the course and on your research project reports. You may be required to sit an oral examination in September.
First or upper-second class BSc degree in a relevant science subject, MBBS with or without intercalated degree.
