This course provides an advanced course of study in Biomedical Sciences with an emphasis on research training. Elective options allow specialisation within five key areas of the study of human disease (medical biochemistry, cancer biology, cellular pathology, medical microbiology and vascular biology). The course uses a range of teaching strategies, combined with reference to research to broaden and deepen knowledge and understanding of the Biomedical Sciences, develop management, research and personal transferable skills, and enhance autonomous learning to equip you for careers in the public sector (e.g. academia, health) or the private sector (e.g. pharmaceutical, biotechnology or food industry, forensicveterinary laboratories). The research project represents a third of the course, and you will be provided with a choice of projects in which we try to accommodate your research interests in laboratories within the School of Life Sciences, including the recently built Institute of Cancer Therapeutics, and the Institute of Pharmaceutical Innovation. The course follows the standard pattern and is available at MSc level only. It is currently only available full-time. Please note that the full-time MSc course (in common with all similar MSc Biomedical Science courses) no longer provides a route towards registration as a Biomedical Scientist in the National Health Service for students with degrees not accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science. For registered Biomedical Scientists working in IBMS-accredited laboratories there is a part-time PgDMSc route. Outline Syllabus All students will study a common programme covering the following areas: Communication in Biomedical Sciences ? covers how to prepare and organise a literature search, and how to communicate critically and effectively in all aspects of biomedical sciences, including the peer review process. Research and Analytical Methods ? covers advanced biomedical techniques such as biomedical analysis in clinical laboratories, cell culture, recombinant DNA techniques, microscopy (light-, confocal-, and electron-microscopy), evaluation of a research seminar. The course has a strong theory component supplemented by laboratory workshops. The module is assessed by a portfolio which evaluates critical understanding and application of the techniques studied. Principles of Management ? an evaluation of management principles and laboratory management. Devised by staff from the University?s School of Management. Critical Appraisal ? a critical appraisal of the scientific literature on a current topic in the biomedical sciences, each student having a different topic and a specialist supervisor. Experimental Design ? covers the wider aspects of research and research practice, such as Good Laboratory Practice (GLP), standard operating procedures (SOP), Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH), ethical approval, statistical analysis of data, and grant writing. Specialist Options - students will also select a specialist option from a range offered in the areas of cancer biology, cellular pathology, medical biochemistry, medical microbiology or vascular biology. Specialist modules will be complemented by individual critical appraisal topics and research projects within these specialisms. Research Project ? one-third of the credits making up the MSc course come from an individual project based in a well-equipped research laboratory in one of our internationally renowned research areas in the School of Life Sciences. Assessment Core and optional modules are assessed by written examinations and by a variety of coursework including laboratory reports, structured exercises, essays, peer review, critical presentation of a research paper (journal club), writing grant applications, and standard operating procedures. The critical appraisal, the research project and placement are assessed by written reports and by an oral presentation and a viva voce, respectively.
