The MSc in Mathematical Medicine and Biology will provide you with skills suitable for a research career in the exciting and growing field of mathematical medicine and biology.
You will take core modules in biology and physiology, and the application of mathematics to medicine and biology. More advanced modules will introduce research topics in biomedical mathematics, including options in Computational Biology and Theoretical Neuroscience.
The taught training programme will be followed by a substantial individual project leading to a dissertation.
Throughout the course, the exceptional strength of the Centre for Mathematical Medicine and Biology will facilitate your hands-on experience of interdisciplinary biomedical research.
- This course is informed by the work being carried out in the Centre for Mathematical Medicine and Biology.
- The School of Mathematical Sciences is one of the largest and strongest mathematics departments in the UK, with over 50 full-time academic staff.
- The latest Research Assessment Exercise ranked the School eighth in the UK in terms of research power across our three subject areas.
Over the summer period towards the end of the course, you will undertake a research project. This research will be of some depth and will form the basis of your dissertation; it will be carried out under the supervision of a member of academic staff.
This project will develop your ability to engage in independent learning, and will prepare you for postgraduate research or careers in industry.
