Research in DNA technology, bioinformatics and immunology are becoming essential elements in the routine diagnosis and treatment of a range of disorders, including gene disorders, infectious diseases and multi-factorial diseases such as cancer and heart disease. This course is intended to give you the skills and knowledge you need to understand and apply the technologies emerging from that research. The market for such skills includes the medical laboratory service, research institutions, forensic medicine and industries related to medicine. The latter includes traditional pharmaceutical and biotechnological companies involved in the commercial marketing of specific products, such as PCR-based diagnostic kits, DNA probes, gene therapy vectors, recombinant proteins and monoclonal antibodies. This course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS). Course content Core modules: ? Genetics and developmental genetics ? Molecular Science and Genetics ? Molecular Therapeutics ? Project A: Critical Review and Design Study. ? Project B: Project and Report ? Recombinant DNA Technology Option modules: ? Bioinformatics in Medicine ? Clinical Governance ? Immunopathology ? Immunotherapy ? Molecular Bioinformatics Facilities The course is taught at our newly refurbished Cavendish site, with recent investment of over ?5 million in advanced equipment and facilities within the School of Biosciences. You will have access to all the dedicated library and computing facilities that you would expect from one of Britain?s largest universities. Teaching Taught modules take the form of lectures, tutorials, workshops, seminars or laboratory sessions. Teaching staff The continuing quality of teaching at Masters and professional levels is ensured by the constant engagement of many members of staff in research and supervision of research degrees, as well as through guest lectures and workshops. Assessment Assessment methods are varied and may be carried out through the appraisal of posters, essays, debates, seminars, practical reports, casework studies and audio presentations. Research Research within the School encompasses a wide range of disciplines. Active research is occurring across a range of areas including biochemistry, molecular biology, cellular biology, microbiology, physiology, as well as in molecular and whole body adaptations to diet and exercise that form the basis for applied research in biomedical sciences, biodiversity and biotechnology. Associated careers This course will appeal to you if you are, or intend to be, employed as a biomedical or clinical scientist in the NHS, a research institution or a pharmaceutical company. It will also be useful if you wish to gain a further, more specialised qualification prior to embarking on a PhD. The course has also proved useful for medically trained doctors about to embark on research.
