This programme will equip you with the necessary ethos, critical evaluative skills and technical competence to pursue a research career in the in vivo sciences. Such an approach is essential to understand the complex interactions among body systems, and how these may be modified with adaptations, by drugs, and during pathologies. You will graduate equipped with essential skills for training to PhD level with an excellent grounding for future careers in biological research, the pharmaceutical industry or higher education. You will have access to a comprehensive support system that will assist and encourage you, including personal tutors and welfare tutors who can help with both academic and welfare issues. Additionally, you will be allocated an experienced postgraduate student to act as a mentor. The MRes students have a dedicated laboratory for the first semester, where they have access to all the equipment and resources needed to perform their skills training.
