This is a 1 year program, delivered across two taught terms and one for research.
This 3 month long term is very intensive. You’ll learn critical research skills and then select one specialist module, either Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease or Infection and Immunity.
In this term you will beign a substantial research project. The Principle Investigators of the CEM will provide a panel of projects, each related to one of the specialties offered in Term 1.
If you selected the Diabetes and Cardiovascular stream in term 1, you’ll take a pair of complimentary taught modules relating to that sub-field. These will explore the core principles of these illnesses, as well as looking in detail at both current and still experimental treatments.
If you took the Infection and Immunity module in Term 1, you’ll take a different set of modules in Term 2. You’ll look at antimicrobial resistance, infection biology, and the role of infection and the inflammatory process in disease. This will involve translational medicine in particular.
Your final term will be dedicated solely to finishing your research project.
