Newcastle University: Two new Master of Research degrees

By StudyLink

Newcastle University has added two new exciting subject areas to its Master of Research programme: MRes in Diabetes and MRes in Mitochondrial Biology and Medicine.
The MRes in Diabetes includes teaching on the genetic, immunological and biochemical abnormalities underpinning the disease and its complications; prevention of diabetes; management, including new developments in stem cell therapies and immune modulation; designing clinical trials in diabetes; and technology and diabetes.
The MRes in Mitochondrial Biology and Medicine includes teaching on the origins and essential functions of mitochondria; maintenance and expression of the mitochondrial genome; the metabolic processes in which mitochondria play a role, and diseases that result from mitochondrial dysfunction.
These exciting new programmes add to the wide range of MRes degrees available in Biomedicine at Newcastle and provide a springboard into a career that involves a working knowledge of scientific research in academia and industry. The MRes is a full-time programme that provides broad-based training in contemporary biosciences and medical sciences.
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, professional and key skills training and a 24 week laboratory-based research project. The programme enables students to experience an internationally competitive research area, predominantly in academia but also potentially in industry.
A limited number of different types of International bursaries are available. To discuss MRes opportunities for International students please contact Professor Steve Yeaman.
The MRes is one of several postgraduate degree programmes offered by Newcastle Biomedicine, which is a world leading collaboration of research scientists, engineers, medical doctors and teaching professionals who deliver undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in medicine, dentistry and health and Biosciences.
Newcastle Biomedicine is a recognised national centre of excellence that brings together internationally respected research in clinical care, basic science and engineering in an innovative environment. Key areas of focus include ageing, stem cells, cancer, cell biology, genetics, drug development, medicine in society, and neuroscience.
